Bengali cuisine is as unique, distinct, and rich as the state of West Bengal itself. Popularly known as the state of ‘bhaat’ and ‘maach’, West Bengal has something or the other to offer to everyone. From the spicy Maacher Jhol to the sweet and delicious Sondesh, Bengali cuisine is full of dishes with interesting and indulging flavours, textures and aromas. The cuisine has Nawab and British influence and has dishes which are a gift of these influences like chops and cutlets. However, apart from the sweet dishes, the most popular Bengali dish that has kept Indians hooked to Bengali cuisine is ‘Maacher Jhol’. Essentially, the dish is made with freshwater fish which is braised in a ‘jhol’ (a runny jus made by adding a few authentic Bengali spices). Although the term ‘jhol’ is quintessentially glued to fish, there are other vegetarian and non-vegetarian ‘jhol’ dishes widely savoured in Bengal too. Scroll down for the recipes of these delicious Bengali dishes.
