  1. Hey..this was good. We usually make Aloo post but now that I am not supposed to have potatoes, I’ll cook this!!! There was another thing that I wanted to ask. I read so many recipes, but found no mention of posto paste added to chicken or mutton dishes? why is it so? And why is Shukto had only for lunch?

  2. WOW !! A great website for authentic bengali vegetarian food .. Earlier I used to think that Bong means mach-bhat (Fish and rice) but now I think different !! Great effort !! Keep it going !!

    1. Hi Debolina,
      Thanks for your comment. Mach-bhaat definitely takes up a big portion of the Bong life, but its not all. There’s more in it. Dig in and you can taste it, literally.

  3. Hi,
    Firstly Congratulations for creating such a great blogsite. I just love coming back here.

    There are quite a few such blogs online these days. But unfortunately it seems that people are either net-savvy or kitchen-savvy, but never savvy both ways. I guess the most likely reason for these is all the bong bloggers are self taught cooks – who never had the chance to learn the original and classic formule.

    But your site is a refreshingly different one. You are the FIRST EVER blogger who has posted AUTHENTIC Bengali recipes – at least most number of them (ahem). I sincerely congratulate you on your effort. Please keep it up and give Probasi-Bangalis like me to have more excuses to keep coming back to your page.
