SHHHH COOKING SECRETLY CHALLENGE

Challenge for this month in Shhh Secretly cooking challenge FB group is Bengali cuisine. Bengali cuisine is known for its varied use of flavours, as well as the spread of its confectioneries and desserts. West Bengal is known as the land of maach (fish) and bhaat (rice). I am always in love with Bengali sweets. There was lot of options to choose unlike other cuisines. I would love to visit West Bengal sometime and explore the wide range of street food and desserts.
