Green Peas Kachuri/Karaisutir Kachuri

“The food is essential for our soul”….The “FOOD”is not that which is only being taken by our mouth. According to The Bhagavad Gita food has been associated with the five senses: Touch for the skin, smell for the nose, sound for the ear, sight for the eyes and taste for the tongues.

Why I am telling you all this because whenever I make this Karaisutir(Peas) Kachuri(Indian Bread) ,I always feel that these kachuri touch my five senses….. 🙂 The Bengali delicacy Karaisutir Kachuri (Green Peas Kachuri)seems so difficult to make…but after 1 or 2 trial you can master it …believe me..:) …And this delightful dish will touch your soul with fresh flavor of seasonal peas.
