Today I am not sharing any recipes but as I promised I am sharing few festive moments some delicious foods from the grand festival of my town Kolkata and I hope you all will love it for more pics from the event visit me on flicker.
The fist image is of the two signature sweets of Bengal Rosogolla and Chanar Jilapi. Rosogolla are melt in a mouth small balls made of Indian cottage cheese or chana dipped in simple syrup. The other one Chaner jilapi is also made from Indian cottage cheese but this are fried and then dipped in simple syrup. Both are mouthwatering and are hot favorite during this festive season.
This is the traditional idol of Mother Goddess Durga and her two son Lord Ganesha And Lord Kartikeya and her two daughter Maa Lakshmi (goddess of wealth) and Maa Swaraswati (godess of knowledge).
This are called pandals where Maa Durga is worshiped for five days. People from all over the world visit Kolkata to see this five days architectural wonders. You will not find any similar pandals, each one is unique in it's own beauty.
Catch more action of the festival in my flicker slide show.
I hope you will love it. If you are planning to visit India then I will love to invite you in Kolkata in this festive season next year. Durga puja is not a religious festival but a carnival where you will find celebration of life.
