    Since I entered into the blog world, I have come across some awesome cuisines of India and one of them is Bengali food. I have loved reading your posts, I especially like all your fish recipes. Here i do not have access to fresh fish so I rarely cook it. I would like to continue to see authentic Bengali food cooked by you.
