Sharing a Hint Of Bengal With the World


The Bengalis are great food lovers and take pride in their cuisine! A meal for the Bengali is a ritual in itself even if it is only boiled rice and lentils (dal bhat) with of course a little fish. Bengalis, like the French, spend not only a great deal of time thinking about the food but also on its preparation and eating. Also, Bengali cuisine is perhaps the only food style in the Indian region which still holds its authenticity over 1000 years. Though Bengal was once ruled by the Mughal emperor and,  once was even the capital of British-colonized India the authenticity of food styles was preserved and enriched over the years. However, in comparison with the popularity of South Indian & North Indian cuisine - the Bengali food still lags behind in terms of popularity and people's attention. 

So, we wondered why not share with you some authentic Bengali cuisine's photographs by @curious.curry:
