IMG-20170919-WA0022

Hiiii friends!!!! Long time, no story, no posts, no likes nothing.  Yes dear, it  totally went off . Ya, my Laptop got angry and refused to listen to my instructions as if it was asking for some rest. Last forthnight was so eventful, I wanted to share every bit of it. Was henpecked bcz all the photos were locked in my laptop. I was busy with  Durga Puja festival and I could not get time to get it repaired. Thank God, today I got it back and hence get an opportunity to pen down the details of the festival, the food I cooked and dinning outside home.

 It was Dussehra week which is celebrated all over India. But for Bengalis all over the world, it was “Dugga Pujo” week . This is the festival which all Bengalis look forward to for the whole year. On the last day of the festival that is Vijaya Dashami, when Maa Durga idol is immersed in river ganges, the crazy Bengalis start planning for the next year Pujo!! It was a joyous week spent with family and friends. Here are some pictures of few Goddess Durga idol of Delhi and a glimpse of the beautiful 1.4 km long Alpona rangoli on the streets of Kolkata.

The festival was more eventful for me. Guess how!!! I went commercial with my home cooked food for the first time, although it was at a very small level. During Dura Puja,  a home cooked food fest is organized in most of the Delhi Puja Pandals. In this food Fest, only housewives and young girls from neighboring residential area are allowed to put up food stall of home cooked food and sell it. The customers are also mostly from the neighboring area. It is real fun.  This time, I too put up a food stall. I sold, Chingri Polao/prawn pulao/pilaf, a typical Bengali cuisine and grilled chicken in red wine sauce, topped up with grilled tomato and olives. Both the items was a hit, it flew fast from the table. I will share the recipes on my next separate post.
