Non-Vegetarian favourites are the Bhetki Paturi (Bekti fish cooked in mustard in a banana leaf), Parshe Jhal (baby Mullet fish curry) and Chingri (prawn curry).

Bengali Fun Foods

If you wish to have a proper Bengali home-styled meal, head to Bengali Fun Foods in Perungudi. Although their authentic bhaat and maach combo will remain our all time favourite, you could check out different varieties to try out from the streets of Kolkata. The owners will help you choose one too. They even serve some Kolkata chicken biryani. Pair it up with some kosha mongsho or chicken bhartha. You will be in for a treat!

Northern Connection

Missing home? Head to Northern Connection in Ramapuram. They will treat your taste buds with meals of luchi and aloo dum! Apart from home-style fish and chicken curry, they have koftas and baingan ka bharta that you must try. If you are confused as to which fish dish would be the best to try, no matter how much we want to say all of them, we would particularly suggest fish paturi. Apart from that, you can go for crabs and prawns as well. They even serve the Kolkata street favourite - the egg devil! For a perfect end to the meal, order up some rossogolas or raso malai.

Hotel Bangla

Never judge a book by its cover! Serving up steamy home meals is Hotel Bangla, a hidden place located in Park Town. The best idea is to order the meals here which come with unlimited rice and dal. You will even get helpings of aloo ki sabzi and mix veg sabzi. Along with that, if you want chicken meals, you can get chicken kosha or you could go for prawns and fish too. Katla, rohu, mourula or pabda are some of the fish dishes they have on offer. The only downside is that they just accept cash.
