The menu not only offers some scrumptious non-vegetarian delicacies, but has an assortment of fares for the vegetarian soul. From Niramish Dim eer Dalna (a unique vegan delight , dumpling made of moong lentil & cottage cheese in brown onion gravy), to the Enchorer Dum (a Medium spicy raw jack fruit curry with grounded spices) and Narkeli Cholar Dal (Coconut infused lentil) the wide array of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes are a tantalising mixture of curries, spices and traditions.
Speaking about the menu for the brunch, Head Chef Amlan Bose says, “The menu that is being offered at the brunch is a completely traditional assortment of dishes. All these dishes highlight the love Bengalis have for good food and the recipes are authentic representations of ancient recipes that have perhaps been long forgotten in the pages of History. The dishes highlight the innate flavour profiles associated with Bengali cuisine and are a remembrance of dishes that once only our grand-mums could make.”
From a Pomfret fish specialty of Khulna ( Bangladesh) with poppy seed, coconut to the radhaballavi or the patisapta, The Bong Baisakh Brunch celebrates the flavours of Bengal like never before!
