Maqluba......
The dish includes meat, rice, and fried vegetables placed in a pot, which is then flipped upside down when served, hence the name maqluba, which translates literally as "upside-down".When the casserole is inverted, the top is bright red colour from the tomatoes and rest covered with other vegetables. It is usually served with either Yogurt or simple Arabic salad...

Chicken Massaman Curry...
Massaman or Matsaman is not a native Thai word. It is generally thought to refer to the Muslims with earlier writers from the mid-19th century calling the dish "Mussulman curry".

Fish Egg Omelette Singaporean style.
Recently during my visit to Singapore, I had this amazing Oyster Omelette in one of the Hawker centre. Though it was delicious, but oily. Back home I wanted to desperately make this dish, I could not get Oyster... so tried to be a bit innovative... I had Rohu fish eggs which I used in place of Oyster.

Cauliflower Kootu
Kootu in Tamil means 'add'. Any Vegetable can be added with the lentils. Different types of Kootu are made with different spice flavour. It is an South Indian dish. The gravy here is not very thin.
Here I have made Cauliflower Kootu. The flavour of the Kootu powder here with the vegetable and lentil has an awesome taste. It is eaten with hot steam rice.

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
