LUCHI AND BEGUN BHAJAA

Delicious maida-poories deep fried in ghee and pan-fried marinated slices of Eggplant will make your mouth water like never before!

SHUKTO

Shukto is of various types, depending on the type of spices or vegetables used. In general, it is a little bitter in taste because of bitter gourd. Out of all the types of shukto, try dudh shukto where milk is used to temper the taste of the whole preparation!

ALOO POSTO

Aloo in lightly spiced poppy seeds paste with steamed rice will make you go ‘mamma mia!

BHAAT AND CHOLAR DAAL

Chana daal boiled in turmeric and tempered with spices is the most delicious thing you’ll ever it. Club it with some luchi or rice and you’ll be good to go!
