Quintessential Bengali Puja lunch
This diet is not for the faint of the heart.
Luchi mangsho bhaja-bhuji bnodey and pantooa
(Deep fried bread, chicken curry, fritters and other fried vegetables, two different sweet meats – both of which require deep frying)
Nothing has caught a Bengali’s eye that eventually did not land up getting fried. Bengali Puja lunches are nothing if not elaborate cholesterol doling our ceremonies.
This reminded me of all the Bengali wedding feasts that I’d been to, which I used to relish in my Durgapur days!
