Doi-mach and other delicacies

On Gautam Ghosh’s suggestion, decided to try out a Bong food joint called Victoria’s Corner on Saturday evening.

Along with a few friends who were game enough to join me on a culinary adventure in West Bengal cuisine, we reached the place at about 10.30 pm. It was obviously the wrong time, since they were nearly closing. So though tasty, both the prawn malai curry and the doi-mach (fish preparation in curd) they served were a little cold.

The second round of doi-mach however was piping hot and we enjoyed it much more. There were some exotic sounding vegetable preparations with karela and potol, but that’s for the second round visit!

If you have a yen for Bengalee food (that’s how they spell it on their sign board!), I’d suggest you try this no frills place near Domino’s on 100ft Road, Indirinagar. It’s in a corner (hah!) and you could easily miss it, so be very attentive! (Very cost effective too). Just go early. They close by about 10.30 pm.

Thanks, Gautam! If any of you have any suggestions or recommendations for good culinary adventures, you know where to park them 🙂

    pls do try out hilsa fish (or ilish mach as ‘Bengalees’ call it). hilsa in mustard sauce with piping hot rice and u will not ask for anything else.

    u might have a tough time separating the bones. keep a tissue handy; mustard sauce might give u a perennial nose.

    and try out some humble chane ki dal (sholar dal)with baingan fry. and maybe karela fry as well.

    bon appetit!
