•    Tandoori Chicken

If you are desert lovers too, you should not miss tasting the Kulfi, Ghazak, Rewri and special Meetha Pan. Yummy!

2.    Kolkata

Kolkata and Rosogolla have almost become synonymous over the years. And that is why an Indian will surely identify Kolkata with Rosogolla and Sandesh. Jokes apart! Kolkata is truly a Foodista’s paradise and you should not miss trying different varieties of Chops and Cutlets (veg, chicken, egg) along with-

•    Alu Posto

A picture that I like to call, ‘how to spell happiness in Bengali.’ My cousin dropped in at dawn today, when I was fast asleep, on a work trip to Mumbai. As always, I tried to feed him breakfast but he said ‘po-re’ (later) and had the tea and heart shaped (don’t judge us, @sbowindia had sent it on Valentine’s) khaari biscuits that I offered. He did have lunch though. Jeera chicken and rice from Khane Khas. I prefer to have white curries with roti and not rice but he was firm and well, he’s a grown up now. He wanted ‘veg’ for dinner and we happily tucked into an excellent bhaaja moonga dal with fried bits coconut and green peas, a divine jheenge alu posto and Gobindobhog bhaat, the short grained aromatic rice that we Bengalis dote on. The only difference between our meals was that I took the Instagram worthy plate and a touch of Jharna ghee which he didn’t want. To ensure that I don’t try to make him have breakfast before he heads off to work, he told me that he’s bought a pack of Oreo’s for that! I am the eldest in my generation of my mom’s side of the family and do tend to forget that my cousins have grown up. PS Called in dinner from Oh! Calcutta, Khar through Swiggy. It’s fairly expensive but worth the money. This is superb stuff. Both in terms of taste and of the quality of ingredients used. My cousin, who is stationed in the interiors of Maharashtra with no access to Bengali food, tripped on it as did I. #platesoffinelychopped #bengalifood #indianfood #aluposto #moongdal #jharnaghee #gobindobhog #ohcalcutta #bunkinbanu #mumbaistories #yum #vegetarianfood #bengaliinmumbai #foodwriter #foodblogger #foodstagrammers #food #yum
