Recently, this gorgeous Bengali gal, Mouni Roy, graced us with her presence on our Dussehra special episode of the Sunday Brunch with our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani. This combination of Dussehra, Sunday Brunch and Mouni was a fatal one. It was certainly going to revolve around Bengal, Durga Puja, Bengali food, recommendations, and more. She told us that Bengali Chinese is an extraordinary cuisine that one should try.
Mouni Roy Gave Us Some Of West Bengal’s Food Recommendations
Kamiya enquired about the places one should visit when they go to West Bengal. Mouni Roy came fully prepared for these food recommendations from Bengal. She told us to definitely try the egg and chicken rolls as well as momos. She also said that Bengali Chinese is a terrific fusion fare and we should definitely try it. Bengali Chinese is truly bomb-dot-com and you are missing out if you haven’t tried it. Lastly, she told us to enjoy some of the yummiest authentic Bengali places.
She told us to try “All the authentic Bengali places, any place. I think whether it is a big restaurant or a small one, what Bengal is really really famous for is food.” We totally agree with you on this, Bengal and Bengalis are surely known for their food! Mouni Roy also suggested we go for proper Bengali thalis, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian ones. We will keep these recommendations in mind for when Curly Tales visits West Bengal next time.
They Devoured Nolen Gur Roshogullas And We Can’t Help But Drool!
Right before coming to the topic of recommendations from West Bengal, they indulged in the softest roshogullas. Yes, it is not rasgulla but roshogulla and Mouni Roy agreed! Kamiya was curious to know what was that distinct thing that separated two well-liked Bengali desserts, Nolen Gur Roshogulla from Roshogulla. Mouni Roy informed Kamiya that regular Roshogulla is produced only with sugar whereas Nolen Gur Roshogulla is done with Gur.
Gur is the Bengali word for jaggery. That’s why Nolen Gur Roshogulla has a yellowish hue. Kamiya jokingly questioned Mouni if Nolen Gur Roshogulla meant to be healthier because jaggery is better for the body than sugar. At this, both of them burst out laughing and Mouni told Kamiya to stop worrying about calories and just enjoy the goodness of Roshogulla. Then they happily dug into it.
