Bengali Fish Cutlet – Bengali Fish Cutlet or Fish Croquette is an Indian cuisine and is a cutlet that is cooked with fish, spices, lemon and salt.

I love Kolkata and majorly because I’m a foodie. One can always find the roads to be filled with street snacks and Chinese pork roll is one of my must have’s, if I’m visiting the city. The aroma and the flavour they bring is next to none. Also, the authenticity of the Chinese dish makes it even more interesting and fulfilling. Do try I, if you happen to visit the city.
Description – Lobongo Lotika is a traditional Bengali sweet. It is a sweet khoya kheer stuffing in a neatly wrapped envelope of dough that has been bathed in the sugar syrup which is sealed with a clove or two. As you bite into it, the sweet crispy crust takes you to a soft moist succulent kheer with a lingering flavor and freshness of clove that fills your senses.

Goan Fish Fry – One of the truly delicious dishes from the Goan Cuisine is the Goan Fish Curry. I love it so much because it is a perfect combination of the French cooking with the local Konkan twist to it. it is like a cracker in the mouth and is perfect with Roti and Rice.
Summer season, time to go out sun bathing, enjoy beach parties and relaxation. Along, with pleasure the season brings in tanning, dehydration, heat and hot air.
