Prawn with ridge gourd curry is very popular recipe in Bengal. Bengalis are also very fond of fishes. And prawn is one of them . Though it is said prawn is not a fish still we count it as fish only. In Bengali it is called chingri itself. There are such yummies recipes of prawn which I shared before and today sharing one more delicacy of prawn . Hope you will like it very much. Very simple and easy recipe . It takes very few times to prepare. Overall it is a combination of veg and non-veg . So balanced and tasty too. It can goes very well with plain rice only. So have it with plain rice.

As per nutritional value of ridge gourd , its low in cholesterol and saturated fats but high in vitamin C, riboflavin, dietary fiber and full of magnesium, zinc and iron . It is like a vegetable for weight loss plan. Basically prawn has no such beneficial nutritional value being a seafood , it contains protein, calcium and magnesium also.

Anyway today i want to share with you one bengali traditional cabbage recipe which is mostly done in our every Bengali kitchens. But there are some variation in the recipe preparation, because some like to use onion - ginger paste to it but I always prefer to cook without onion ginger as much as possible for vegetarian recipes.In Bengali cabbage is called badhakopi . Seasonal cabbage tastes better but nowadays all vegetable items are available throughout the year. So there is no limitation to prepare cabbage recipe in  any day. So try this one and relish the dish with plain rice and dal. One trick to buy cabbage , try to buy that cabbage which is more greenish in color and sizes are small too. Its good to taste!
