Celebrating Durga Puja

Devi Durga

This is our  most beautiful Mother God Maa Durga we worship for health, wealth and prosperity.
The most auspicious festival that we celebrate in this part of the globe is on. I don’t know that you have heard about it or not but this is the time when we worship Mother God as Devi Durga. All Bengalis all over the world celebrate this special occasion. And in our city this is the carnival time with lots of color lights, glamour, glitz and of course delicious tasty yummy foods. I am busy for this preparation so I am bit late for this post. In my coming post I will share some good festive stories but it will be after a short break because I will be enjoying this once in a year grand festival with my family and friends. But while I enjoy Durga Puja you enjoy this lovely quick to make delicious healthy Chinese egg preparation Foo Yong.

Egg    4 
Green chilly    1 to 2 chopped
Onion       1 chopped
Garlic        2 clove chopped
Yellow and Red bell pepper   1/4  cup chopped
Shrimp       4 to 6 ( deveined)
Chicken small cube   4 to 6 (optional)
Spring onion    1 teaspoon (finely chopped)
Grated coconut   1 teaspoon  (optional)
Fresh coriander    1 table spoon (finely chopped)
Sugar     2 pinch
Salt and pepper according to taste

Take a big bowl now beat the eggs with a pinch of salt. Now add all the above ingredients. Mix well. Adjust seasoning. Now take another bowl brush it with any vegetable oil and then pour the whole mixture in it. Then steam this whole mixture in your steamer for 10 minutes or till done. (Traditionally Foo Yong  is a fried dish but to make it healthy I tried the steam version.) You are ready to relish another delicious healthy dish.As I have to do lots of shopping and pack gifts for friends and family I have very less time to spend in kitchen so such easy tasty dish is appropriate for such time. Have it with bread for lunch or dinner and your are done with a guilt free filler.

Be Happy And Stay Healthy.
