Durga Puja finds a special place among the festivals of India. It is celebrated
by Bangla speaking people of the country and all over the world, to commemorate
the triumph of goodness over the evil. Feasting and fasting are the two highlighting
aspects of the ceremonious occasion, apart from the set up of magnificent puja pandals
at every nook and corner of West Bengal. The busy streets of the eastern state of
India are occupied with people, who enjoy all the ten days of the festival by worshipping
Goddess Durga and making delicious dishes.
Although Bengalis are known for their sweet tooth, their cuisine consists of a number
of spicy dishes as well. Nonetheless, they add a tinge of sugar to their dishes,
in order to satisfy their taste buds. Some of the Bengali spicy dishes that have
gained popularity over the years include Chola Dal, Bandhakopar Dalna and Aloo Posto.
Bengalis are world-famous for the melt-in-the-mouth Roshogulla, which is their favorite
sweet dish. The Bengali recipes are easy to make as well as take much less time.
In this section, we have given the recipes for some of the popular Bengali dishes,
