This is one super tasty dish and it is completely Bengali style dish so I give this name to this dish. This recipe will be very useful to vegetarians and it can use as the side dish with breakfast, lunch and dinner. I got this recipe details from my best friend Mini and I followed the same method. This is her favourite and special dish so she introduced about this curry so I made it and I also like this very much. This is having a variety smell and taste and Potato and Cabbage is really very good combination. Its taste will become double when Red Lentils add and also increase the protein content. This this thick curry and has the flavour and taste of masala. This is super combination with Chapati. This is very simple and easy to make at home.
