Bong Mom's CookBook Recipe Index


My blog Bong Mom's Cookbook is a collection of Bengali Recipes representing the Bengali Cuisine as I know it. It also has those recipes that are non-bengali but which we loved. The measurements are not always exact as I do not treat the kitchen as a lab but as a place where I follow my heart and rely on my senses and instinct. Also they were created to suit mine and my family's tastes, please adjust spices etc. according to your own taste level.

I hope you are able to create a satisfying dish from these recipes and have fun while doing so.

  8. Hi,
    This is Rahena, i just loved your recipes.Please keep the site updated, me and my mom are trying out your various dishes.. Thanks a lot

  9. To answer your question: "What is a forgotten food in your family that you would like to bring back?" My family is from N. India but were moved to Fiji by the British. Somehow my mother's mum made Dosas when my mum was a small girl in Fiji. Though my grandmother's parents were from U.P., she seemed to know how to make South Indian Food. Being from the U.S. I learned to make international foods (including Fiji style Indian and Punjabi), but my husband is South Indian. I would love to bring Dosas back to the family...I'm just not sure how to begin yet.

  10. Hi, would love if you could update your recipe index, or the dropdown on the sidebar to make it easier to search. FOr example, the dudh maachh doesn't appear in the index. I know I can always google it :) but sometimes we may forget something that we read about a long time back, and don't want to lose the chance of trying it out again. Thanks!

  12. Hi Bong Mom

    I am a marathi girl recently got married to a bengali who is a total foodie.
    your site definitely helps. I have one question, recently i made chicken curry and used paanch phoron for TAdka. My bong husband said that paanch phoron is only used to make fish or vegetable. Is it true???

    The chicken tasted awesome so i dont knw why i cant use paanch phoron for tadka. Please help.


  13. PT

    Your bong husband is quiet the cooker :) Yes, it is true that traditionally Paanch Phoron is used for only fish and veggies and not for meat.

    But my MIL & my husband makes an awesome chicken with paanch phoron( I too love it.

  14. Sandeepa, I tried lot of recipies from your site. Very intersting and lots of varity. I was looking for something true bong dishes but using oven not stop top. Can you suggest some?

  15. Not very impressed to be honest.. Bit piculiar recipes with mild taste.. may be good for weak stomach

  17. Recently I was in Bishnupur. We were served Posta'r Bora in the Govt Lodge at lunch. Though a simple preparation, there is no posting in your menu. Posta to be ground to a paste, mixed with chopped onion and green chilli and very little maida. Press fry with a few drops of oil in nonstick pan to make light brown. Avoid deep fry.

  18. Can you please post your kasoori gobi recipe again?When I click on the click it says the page does not exist.

  20. Hi!

    Not very impressed with your blog, more so because its highly disorganized. I tried to look up at your recipe for Paneer Kolhapuri but each time it took me to your recipe of 'kumro fuler bora'....Don't have so much patience to go through each recipe to find out what I am looking for...


    1. Well the blog was primarily for me and my family and it serves that purpose. If it would have been any help to you it would have been nice, if you don't like it, your loss :-)

  21. Please could you give asimple recipe for shephard's pie? or do you already have it in your blog

  22. Thanks for the Dim er dhoka recipe...khub bhalo laglo ranna kore..
