Bengali cuisine & Hyderabad
The current population of Bengalis in Hyderabad has breached 8 lacs with the numbers increasing every day. The Bengalis have embraced the City of Nizams as their home away from home and the culture & tradition has been well accepted by the city dwellers. The rise of Durga Puja celebrations in Hyderabad is something, I as a Bengali cherish a lot. The rise & fall of many Bengali restaurants in the past 20 years of my stay is a testament to the demand for Bengali cuisine in the city. The food is not just cherished by the native non-resident Bengalis but also by the non-Bengali speaking dwellers.
This Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi Purnima) we are celebrating the best of Bengali Cuisine with you at Siesta Hitech with a menu curated by MasterChef India participant Smita Bose & Food Stylist Moumita Ghosh. Siesta Hitech has always been a host to regional food festivals since it’s inception and they were very glad to offer us the venue to showcase the work of the talented home chefs. The menu has been specially curated to connect the two parts of Bengali cuisine (Ghoti & Bangal).
