Dussehra or Durga Pujo celebrations may not be the same this year, but when it comes to indulging in authentic Bengali cuisine, many hotels are not leaving any stone unturned in serving the best of Bengal. The Park Hyderabad is one such hotel that celebrates the cuisine of Kolkata including the traditional thaalis or bhog.
If you’re missing the hustle and bustle of pandal hopping, then Verandah at The Park has a buffet spread of multiple counters that serve typical Kolkata staples curated by the Bengal food expert, Swarnali Pal who does this festival every year.
When you think of street food, bhajas and egg rolls are the first that come to mind. From Begun Bhaja to egg & chicken rolls, deep-fried echor (jackfruit), chicken and fish cutlets, the much-loved puchkas and jhalmuri counters, are just the right way to begin your sumptuous meal. The main course steals your heart with the popular Kosha Mangsho and Luchi, a perfect match made in Bengal, along with Sukto, Chingri Maach, ghee bhaat, echor kalia, fish curry and the delightful Kolkata Biryani to name a few. To end that enormous meal, desserts like Langcha, baked rosogulla, patishapta, sita bhog and payesh serve as a perfect ending.
Maach Mishti and More, the Durga Pujo special at The Park is on till the 26th of October for lunch and dinner in a limited seating capacity. For the ones who are still hesitant about dining out, the hotel offers home delivery too! Check out their menu on their Instagram profile to get more details.
On that note, Happy Dussehra to all our lovely readers!
