Dherosh Chingri Jhol Recipe (Bengali Style Prawn Curry With Ladies Finger) is a traditional dish I have learnt from my mother. All of my family likes it very much. This dish is lighter side dish since it uses comparatively very less spices and oil. At the same time it tastes so different and yummy when you combine bhindi and chingri (prawn). Serve Dherosh Chingri Jhol Recipe (Bengali Style Prawn Curry With Ladies Finger) along with hot steamed rice and ghee on top, along with a Begun Bhaja Recipe and end your meals with Chocolate Sandesh Recipe.
