5 bengali dishes you must savour

Here are five Bengali dishes you must savor.. you don't know what you have missed until you have tried them .. all those who are veggies will miss out a bit, because Bengali's are hardcore non-vegetarians. Moreover fish is a staple diet here so it is essential in almost all delicacies..


<--crabs


1.Lou Chingri -prawns are really yummy when cooked with louki in hindi and sometimes coconut too. FYI prawns are considered as insects :)

2. Kakra or crabs are an absolute yum.. and they are insects too :)

3. Doi Rui-dahi[curd] and rohu fish are absolutely delicious..


chingri-->



4.Hilsha is renowned to be a favourite for Bengali's is truly the king of all fishes. and when cooked with mustard or cur is totally heavenly.

5.shorshe chicken- mustard and chicken seemed like a weird combination at first but trust me it is really out of the world.

<--kakra
