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.
