There, inside of 40 minutes, Khokon whipped up a beautiful no-oil vegan dinner with basmati rice, whole wheat roti, and three vegetable dishes:
- Sautéed spinach with onions, garlic and chili peppers.
- Yellow lentils, tomato, onion, garlic, chili peppers, and some turmeric, salt and pepper
- Water squash (this is a light green squash that is popular with the Bangladeshi community), eddo (a delicious tuber, the jamaicans call this white coco), tomato onion chili peppers, garlic, turmeric, a bay leaf and salt.
|The food was too good, so I only took a pic of the last bit of #3||(bay leaf in the middle)|
In short, this experiment is off to a roaring start. All the ingredients can be found at Neerob Bazaar.
Asked by one of the diners what was the secret of his preparation, Khokon answered: "All you need to cook a good meal is heart." Now, that's my kind of cook, I'll go to his restaurant any old time.
