Sobji Chingri Baati Chorchori

Once again, a traditional Bengali dish, bati chorchori can be cooked over low heat with any vegetable of your choice and a handful of shrimps.



  • Shrimp – 250 gms, cleaned
  • Potato – 1
  • Patol / Pointed Gourd – 3
  • Pumpkin – 1 slice
  • Brinjal – 1
  • Tomato – 1
  • Onion – 1
  • Coriander Leaves – 1 handful
  • Green Chilli – 3
  • Salt and Turmeric – as required
  • Sugar – 1 tsp
  • Mustard oil – 3 tbsp.

Chop all the vegetables into cubes and mix together.


Add salt, turmeric, shrimps and mustard oil to the chopped vegetables and put everything into a deep kadai.

Add 2 cups of water and put the kadai over heat. Cover it with a heavy lid and let it simmer over very low heat. Continue cooking for 15 minutes or till the vegetables are done. Vegetables should be a bit overcooked to make the mixture gravy like. Once vegetables are cook add the sugar and mix well.

Once it is done, sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and a spoonful of mustard oil. Keep covered for 10 more minutes before serving. Serve with plain rice or roti.
