Are you a fan of Bengali food but have given up on binging on authentic Bengali food that is also easy on the pocket? Bangali Mashi’s Kitchen, a new joint in Nerul, Navi Mumbai promises to deliver on all these counts. The restaurant, owned by a Bengali couple, serves a variety of river water fish preparations — Rui, Padba and Ilish being a few of them. “Every dish is served with a subzi and a river water fish item can be relished for as little as Rs 75 here,” says Subhendu Sen of BMK. The items are served in traditional Kansa utensils, to add to the authenticity.
“Snacks such as Devil Egg Chop (Rs 25 per piece) — a whole egg coated with a special batter and deep fried and Shingara (Samosa Rs 15 for two pieces) are already a hit with foodies,” says Sen. Main course has dishes like Luchi (Rs 20 for four pieces), Radhabalbi (stuffed puris with curry at Rs 10 per piece) are some of the most tried items besides the fish and chicken preparations at BMK. Thalis are available at Rs 120 onwards. A Bengali meal is incomplete if you have not indulged in its traditional sweets. Mishti Doi (sweetened curd Rs 30) and Payesh (Rs 30) are some of the options on the dessert front.
