What’s Special About Bengali Cuisine?

If Mouni Roy sharing numerous lip-smacking Bengali delicacies is not enough for you to try out Bengali cuisine, then here we have more reasons for you to do so! Firstly, Bengali cuisine is wholesome and it will satisfy you to the fullest. A basic Bengali meal starts with a ‘Shukto,’ which is a bitter preparation and is followed by a leafy vegetable mix ‘Shak.’ Then comes Dal, a mixed variety of vegetables or ‘sabzi’ and the most important, pieces of lemon. For a non-vegetarian meal, there will be added items like fish/mutton/chicken/egg curry or dry fish ‘chutney’. The meal ends with a sweet dish, mostly mishti doi which is sweet curd and other traditional Bengali sweets like Sandesh or rosogolla.
Now imagine missing out on so much! So do take notes from Mouni Roy and don’t forget to enjoy all the yummy Bengali delicacies the next time you visit Kolkata.
