Bengali cuisine has some unique characteristics that set it apart from the rest of the country’s food styles. Hailing from Eastern India, Bengali food makes use of mustard oil and a mixture of five seeds and spices called the panch phoron to get a special flavour.

Bengalis prefer to make a meal of rice rather than rotis, and love peppy dishes like the Baingan Bhaja, Bati chorichori, Bengali-style okra and Luchi. The mithai of the region is also quite unique, characterised by the abundant use of chenna, a special type of cheese made by curdling milk. Bengali sweets like Rasgulla, Rasmalai, Chum Chum and Bhappa Doi are famous all over the country. Enter this section to make all these delectable Bengali treats in your own kitchen!
