Bengali Lunch menu List
Its been a year since I shared a North Indian lunch menu here. After I had tried & posted my Punjabi & Gujarati Lunch Thali, I was looking forward to try Rajasthani and Bengali Lunch platters. Based on the suggestions I received from Facebook’s Chef at large group ( one of my favorite groups in facebook ) foodies, I tried this menu list for a Sunday lunch.Thanks everyone for flooding your ideas. Most of them are everyday Bengali recipes. Being a vegetarian, I tried some typical, authentic recipes to make an yummy lunch menu. I prepared Bengali Chaler payesh, Mishti Doi, Mishti pulao, Begun bhaja, Kalai er dal, aloo posto, Doodh Shukto, Bengali tomato Khejur chutney and pickle.I have shared the links for all these recipe below. I am yet to post mishti doi, Doodh shukto and tomato chutney recipes. But I have given the link for the source of these recipes. I thoroughly enjoyed cooking and tasting all these dishes.When I cooked all these recipes, I found Bengali Gobhido bhog rice, Panch phoron – 5 spice mix plays a major role in Bengali cooking. Cooking procedures were very simple yet delicious. It took nearly 1.5 hours to make this entire plattter.Sendhil & Myself enjoyed this thali very much. I loved chaler Payesh , Begun bhaja the most whereas Sendhil’s choice was Chanar dalna and tomato chutney. Over all Iam very happy that I tried & tasted this authentic Bengali Vegetarian Lunch Menu.Lets check out the menu list with some pictures below.
