Here’s the recipe for a dish I cooked a few weeks back. I was in the old market and saw these birds and got over excited and bought a 6-pack or was it 5??
I’ve never cooked small birds like these before. I’ve ate pigeons and quails many times in Bangladesh and here in Cambodia. But I’ve never gotten round to cooking anything like this until now!
Oh and a bit of warning-this post might come across as gruesome-but I’ve written it as it was for me. And to eat meat (or fish) “gruesome” preparation may be a necessity if you don’t get it at the supermarket.

So here is the third part and final part of the dinner I made last week when a friend came to visit from Kuala Lumpur. Here is the side salad and sauce recipe that accompanied the “Fried Cambodian Fish Bengali Style” and “slow fried 3 Aubergine & Pepper dish.
God, all these terms and names of dishes. This is new to me! Normally all I care about is that my food tastes good and is made with fresh and natural ingredients. Since I’ve started writing these recipes for this blog, I’ve noticed that I don’t know the names of many of the fruits, vegetables or other food that I cook with and eat. I know it in Bengali but not in English and sometimes only the German name pops into my head. And to make it more complicated now I’m learning Khmer 🙂
