Lau Aar Aloo Malai Curry (bottle Gourd And Potato In Creamy Coconut Gravy)
‘Malai Curry’ is a Bengali gravy method with a thick coconut milk base. The gravy is mildly sweet. The most common is the ‘ Bengali Chingri (Prawn) Malai Curry’. I had the opportunity to have ‘Egg and Vegetable Malai curry’ during one of my visits in Cooch Bihar in North East and from there the idea of including different vegetables came in my mind. The secret of a good ‘ Malai Curry’ is the use of fresh coconut milk and a combination of spices. Though the curry is mildly sweet due to coconut, I recommend to use a pinch of sugar to get the real taste. Use as much as green chilies to adjust your spice level.
