Started off with
Chana Palong er Bora – Shallow Fried Dumplings of Cottage Cheese and Spinach.
2nd course was a Bhetki Paturi – Chunks of Bhetki fillet marinated in mustard sauce and steamed in plantain leaves. Piquant and delicious, dont know how I missed taking a photo.
Whilst were yakking away, Poulami was busy making Radhaballabhi (stuffed puris) in the kitchen.
Dhoka Dalna- Lentil Dumplings and Potatoes simmering away in Yoghurt gravy
As you can see now with the liquid reduced, served with stuffed puris.
Bengali pulao- mildly sweet Gobindhbhog rice with dry fruits, Kosha Mangsho/Mutton Gravy and Paanch phoron Chicken. The latter was made for one of the ladies who preffered Chicken over mutton.
This was followed by the unique 'Plastic Chutney made with raw papaya and raisins/kishmish.
and for dessert we had Dudh Puli - dumplings in sweetened milk
Came back home with the strains of Rabindra sangeet in my mind.
Thank you Raunak and Poulami for a wonderful meal that cant be had in restaurants.

@ Chetan - Yes. Traditionally it may be called Knacha (Raw) Pneper (Papaya) Chutney. Chutney in Bengal is more like a dessert than an accompaniment

Food is our common ground, a universal experience.
