  1. Luchi-Cholar Dal
    Luchi-cholar dal is the simplest, yet most flavorful, Bengali meal to taste during Durga Puja. This is one of the most popular Bengali breakfasts to start the day with during the festivities. It is simple on the palate but brimming with flavour. The cholar dal with coconut bits is a culinary delight.
  2. Kathi roll
    Kolkata’s Kathi rolls are famous throughout the city. These rolls can satiate your hunger pangs between meals and are loaded with luscious chunks of chicken or mutton, crunchy onions, and finished with some street-style ketchup and a dash of bhaja masala.
  3. Mutton Biryani
    Mutton Biryani is made with a blend of spices along with ‘desi ghee’. It gives a thick and rich flavour and is among the most famous dishes available in Kolkata. The juicy mutton pieces are the icing on the cake for this biryani.
  4. Radhaballavi-Aloo dum
    The radhaballavi, another popular Bengali breakfast, is laden with mashed dals and spices, and the niramish (vegetarian) aloo dom is out of this world! It almost looks like a luchi, but only a true food lover knows that radhaballavi is not as same as luchi.
  5. Basanti pulao-kosha mangsho
    Bengal and its people are known for their love for rice. Especially when it’s cooked with aromatic gobindobhog rice, ghee, dried fruits, kosha mangsho. This delicious recipe can serve as an ideal preparation for this festive season.
