Who is Bhabi?

“Bhabi” is a term used in South Asian cultures, particularly in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, to address the wife of one’s brother. It is a word that signifies a relationship of respect and affection. In some contexts, “bhabi” can also be used to refer to the elder brother’s wife in a broader sense, even if there is no direct sibling relationship. The term “bhabi” carries cultural significance and is often used to acknowledge and honor the relationship between a person and their sister-in-law. It reflects the familial bonds and respect within extended families in these cultures.

What is Bhorta?

Bhorta is a traditional Bangladeshi dish that consists of mashed or pureed vegetables, often flavored with spices, herbs, and sometimes mustard oil. It is typically served as a side dish/condiment or sometimes as a main course. Bhorta can be made using a variety of vegetables, including potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes, spinach, and even fish or shrimp.

The preparation process involves roasting, grilling, or boiling the vegetables until they are cooked through and tender. They are then mashed or finely chopped and mixed with a combination of spices, herbs, salt, and mustard oil for added flavor. Some popular variations of bhorta include Aloo Bhorta (mashed potatoes), Begun Bhorta (mashed eggplant), and Tomato Bhorta (mashed tomatoes).

Bhorta is often enjoyed with steamed rice or flatbreads like roti or naan. Its rich and aromatic flavors make it a popular choice among Bengali cuisine enthusiasts, and it adds a delightful and unique taste to the overall meal.
