Why am I Making Bhojohori manna recipes in My Kitchen?

Though Bhajohori manas food is not expensive but goes to their restaurants is not possible many times. Because Resturants are so far from my place. I tried some of their recipes which are well reviewed on google. One or two of them I liked most like dak bungalow chicken curry and Dab chingri. Both are their restaurant’s signature dish. As a Bengali, I love all Bengali foods. So I decided to try their two signature dishes in my kitchen. After 2 or 3 times I got success, Both recipes taste same as the restaurants served.

What is Daab chingri?

Tender coconut is Called Daab In the Bengali Language. And Chingri is Prawn in Bengali. So “Daab chingri” recipe is nothing but  Prawns Cooked in a Tender Coconut Shell. Daab chingri is a very Popular Prawn recipe from the Bengali cuisine.

The idea is to cook any size of prawns or shrimps inside the green tender coconut in very slow flame. Prawn especially jumbo prawn or galda chingri is a Bengali delicacy.

which cooked in green tender coconut along with the coconut flesh is well known as Daab Chingri To Bengalis.

This recipe is so easy to make at home. It’s taste awesome. Although nowadays delicious & yummy Daab Chingri dish easily available in most of the authentic Bengali restaurants. But Today I want to show how to make Daab Chingri of Bhajohori manna restaurant style.

Because This is the most popular dish in Bhajohori manna which searches in google so many times. Even I searched many times on google but I never get any proper recipe of Bhajori mannans Daab chingri. That’s why I decided to share this recipe with you all so that it helps others who are in search of the same.

Is Bengali Daab Chingri Recipe is Similar to Malabar prawn curry Recipe?

As we all know Coconut milk or flesh always taste best with prawn or shrimps. Malabar Prawn Curry and Bengali Dabb chingri both are similar recipes but not exactly the same. Both recipes have some differences.  This Recipe belongs to Kerala India. And the other name of Kerala in India is  “God’s Own country”.

The abundance of coconut trees in Kerala caused its presence in most Malabar Cuisine. Malabar Cuisine related to the Southern Part of Konkan Coast India.

Usage of Tamarind and Curry leaves in the flavourful Malabar food Cuisine is the main difference with the Bengali Daab Chingri. Malabar prawn curry recipe has a burst of flavour. You will get all the flavours in the same dish like will get the tanginess from the tamarind, Fragrance of the curry leaves and the sweet rich taste of coconut milk.

On the other hand, Daab chingri is a dish from Kolkata, West Bengal India. Kolkata is capital of the Indian state, West Bengal. The Other name of Kolkata isCity of Joy.In the recipe of Daab Chingri, you need only three main ingredients. Like Soft Green tender coconut flesh, water from the same green tender coconut and Prawns or shrimp of any size. It is preferred to use big or Jumbo prawns or shrimps to cook the Daab Chingri. It’s truly a delicious Dish in Bengali cuisine.
