Burger Pizzas and Handmade Flat Bread Pizza....
Let's see how to proof the bread dough in a warm oven to save the time for baking, especially when the kneading time is also reduced.
You need a warm place for the yeast to rise quickly when you are lacking time... This method some what solves the problem. Also we will see the whole recipe of Pizza from scratch...

Dimer Tadka / Anda Tadka / Egg Tadka .......
In and around Kolkatta there are many Punjabi roadside dhabas. Tadka dal is one of the very famous dish found in those dhabas. As a child every time, I visited Kolkatta, I would make it a point to eat this dal made by my Masi ( Aunty ) at her house. Dal Tadka made with yellow lentils is otherwise available everywhere in India, but Tadka dal made with whole green gram / moong dal and the way it is prepared is only available in Kolkatta and it's surroundings. Egg or Chicken or Mutton is added to it. It can be vegetarian too. It is eaten with hot phulkas / Roti. There are many ways of making it. The eggs can be scrambled and added later or the egg can be dropped on the tadka at the end and simmered till the eggs are cooked.
This is one of the way of making it.

Macher Roast / Fish Roast
This recipe is adapted from the book "Thakur Barir Ranna". I have recreated this recipe by adding whole garam masala and green chillies and made it as per my convenience... It is a semi dry dish. This is a very simple and easy to make dish. Even though there are no spice powder added in the recipe , yet it is so tasty. It can be eaten with hot steamed rice.

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.
