Sukto is a dish which we bengalis normaly have after “Dal-Bhaja”. As we say it “Dal-Bhaja-Sukto”, is a very common format in Bengali Lunch time. Sukto is a very delicious & digestive veg curry. Traditional Sukto recipe is prepared mainly with bitter-gourd & different types of vegetables. But you can prepare it with any type of bitter-tasty vegetable…like ucche, helencha shak. Athentic bengali sukto recipe uses mustard paste & milk.

Today I made this with raw banana, raw papaya & helencha shak which is a great appetizer & a good source of Vitamin A. This combination works good whenever you have a stomach-upset. This is a spice-less recipe. Generally we Bangals prepare this variety of Sukto. You can also prepare shukto recipe with radhuni ready to cook masala which is available in market easily.
