2-Hour Traditional Bengali Meal in a Private Kolkata Home

Dishes may include pulao (fragrant saffron-flavored rice), dal (yellow mung lentils spiked with mango-flavored ginger and cumin), beguni (crispy eggplant fritters), alu jhinge posto (potatoes, zucchini, and yellow pumpkin cooked with a poppy seed paste), chingri malai curry (aromatic coconut cream prawns), bhetki paturi (sea bass coated with a mustard paste and steamed in banana leaves). For dessert, you might try payesh (Bengali style rice pudding flavored with cinnamon and sweetened with date palm sugar) or another of her fantastic dishes. Enjoy a delicious meal while learning about Bengali culinary and cultural heritage.

This was such a delightful way to spend an evening. A charming, well travelled lady who was a wonderful hostess and a very nice home. The food was fantastic and our hostess was so knowledgeable about all the dishes and provided us with a lot of information on how to make some of the dishes. Having a meal in a family home like this gives one a whole different aspect on the city.
Delightful and delicious! The two of us enjoyed talking with Iti and found it easy to relate to her. The lunch she prepared and served was well-seasoned, but not hot. Her comfortable apartment in central Kolkata felt like an oasis in the city. We'd love to return!
