Poila Baisakh is the first day of the festival that marks the Naba Barasha (Bengali New Year). It ushers the beginning of agricultural production of Bengal. New ventures are started and marriages held on this day as it is considered extremely auspicious.
Well that's enough gyaan about the Naba Barasha. What you really need to know is this. To celebrate the Poila Basakh, Taj Krishna has brought in a master chef from Taj Bengal, Kolkatta. What he plans to cook are some tantalising autentic thalis - vegetarian and non-vegetarian.
The dishes include names like Lebur Bhat, Machher Tela Jhol, Luchi Begun Bhaja, Mochar Ghonto, Aloor Dam, Bandhakopir Dalna, Begun Pora, Kosha Mangsho,, Bhapa Ilish, Bhetki Patiuri, Chingri Machher Malai Kari, Doi Ilish, Narkel Shorsher Chingri, Chandrapulibroken, Lobongo Latika and Payesh.
A vegetarian meal per head would thin your wallet down by Rs. 325 and a non-vegetarian one by Rs. 375. Please contact Taj Krishna on 2339-2323 for further details.
