Bengali Labra Torkari (Mixed Vegetables Dry)

The Labra is a very simple dish and perhaps that is its greatest decoy. For this dish which is made with a melange of vegetables, in this case Cauliflowers, Peas, Potatoes and Brinjal, with barely any spices – just Bengali five spice (panch phoron), turmeric and a few green chillies – no ginger, no garlic, no onions and no water. Yes, the veggies are slow-cooked dry with just their own moisture content and become a dish that has no individual flavours you can pick out but is a medley of all of them combined into one completely new and amazing fireworks show.
