Durga Puja Recipes

I love Navratri in general. It is a time when Mumbai is all aglow with colour, and there is song, and dance in the air. Towards the end of the Navratri period comes this festival of Durga Puja, that is very special to Bengalis and others in East India. This is a collection of  Durga Puja Recipes to celebrate this holy festival.

Bengalis do everything with passion. This reflects in everything they do at Durga Puja; be it the Pujo and Anjali; the way they dress up; and in the food that is served. Food at Durga Puja is simply divine of course, because it is blessed and is Prasad.  It also reflects the richness and the generosity of the Bengali spirit. Each dish is laden with goodness, whether it is the simple Khichuri or the delectable Rosogulla.

I have just a few recipes and hope to grow this collection of Durga Puja Recipes as time goes by.
