Food holds a special place for the people of Bengal. Whether it is eating or cooking, the quintessential Bengali loves to indulge in both. This love for food is therefore infused in its cuisine. The cuisine offers a varied palate of flavors which makes it a favorite for food lovers, world over.
Keeping in line with this, Star Jalsha’s Rannabanna has come up with a unique concept to celebrate Bengal and Bengalis’ favourite fish- ‘Ilish’.
