Phodshi with Prawns...
This green leafy vegetable is found only during monsoon. This vegetable growns in the forest patches and are sold by the tribals in the local markets, but it is not commonly eaten by people. I discovered this vegetable as the lady working for me had got it. Don't know what it is called in other languages, but here in Mumbai it is called Phodshi. It resembles like spring onion, but it is distinctly different and even a bit bitter. If you get this vegetable, you must try this vegetable... You can make this vegetable in many ways, just simple seasoning of garlic and green chillies or add moong dal to it. I cooked this leafy vegetable with prawns... It's a simple dish.. But taste great with hot rice or chapati..

Story
Tagline
Su's Kitchen By Sumitra is born out of sheer passion to experiment, create, cook and share recipes with people.
Introduction
Born to a Bengali mother who was a very good cook during her era, my passion for cooking grew stronger from the age of 12. As cooking was taught in the school where I studied my culinary skill to learn world cuisine developed. As teacher by profession and working with a NGO, I had for some time lost touch with my passion due to busy schedule for few years. As the years flew by and my daughter turning into a beautiful teenager, I had to give up my job for her. Presently at home and my believe that "An Idle Mind Is A Devil's Workshop"; I have started to full fill my long term dream as a baker and a painter. Gradually my dream is to make my passion into profession. Still a long way to go I hope I will succeed one day. 

I had got Oct 1993 3rd prize in Savvy Magazine for Plum cake recipe Dec 2014 Consolation prize for the Mithai shot recipe Jun 2015 Top 10 prize for Mango and Coconut Poli with Mango Cream. September 2015 got prize for Lufthansa chef's pick of the week for Vegetarians Egg Nargisi Kofta Curry served with Vegetable Palau. September 2015 got prize for creating a recipe with Bottle Gourd as a main ingredient in a cooking contest conducted by Mumbai Chapter Indian Food Freak. November 2015 got Chef's choice prize in Sugar free Dessert Challenge for Strawberry Cashew-nut Mava Barfi
