Asalamu Alaikum Aunty!

I made this Deroche bortha for my in-laws recently and they loved it Masha Allah!

Thank-you so much for your amazing recipes! It really helps those of us who grew up here but want to hold onto our Bangladeshi culture and roots.

Please keep it up! Thanks!

Dear Fareheen,

Walai kumussalam.

Thanks for your mail. I am glad to know that my recipe helped you. It is really interesting to hear that you could impress upon your in-laws with the recipes I posted. I am planning to post some more Bhortha recipes for young people like yourself.
