Dal of the Day (Chef's Special)

Shukto is a Bengali delicacy which has its origins in Portuguese cuisine. During the Portuguese rule in India, they had a preparation of bitter gourd (which itself is of Indian origin) which was used as a mouth freshener. The Bengalis fell in love with the dish and adapted it to their tastes through addition of multiple vegetables and sweet/milk to give rise to Shukto.

Shukto or shuktoni is considered to be a true blue Bengali dish, a talisman of the plethora of vegetarian recipes abound in the Gangetic plains. Although Bengali food is stereotyped to be a fish heavy affair, we do take pride in preparing delicate dishes with a wide array of vegetables. A hefty lot of these have been developed by the ancient settlers in the Vedic period that weren’t keen on consuming any animals or even high protein foods like musoor daal as it was believed to increase libido. Usage of onions and garlic, when it first appeared in these regions, were prohibited for the same reason.

The cuisine of Bengal consists of dishes from both East and West Bengal i.e. undivided Bengal era as well as the dishes which originated in the city of Kolkata during the British rule. There is an emphasis on vegetarian cuisine, specially during festivals and is most commonly prepared without onion and garlic. A Mughlai influence on the cuisine is due to the their rule over certain parts of Bengal and the last Mughal emperor Wajid Ali Shah has said to have contributed a lot to the Bengali cuisine.

There is a bit of history involved with the origin of this unique blend of cuisines; The Indian form of “Hakka Cuisine” originates from the fact that the a lot of Chinese restaurants in India are owned by the people of the Hakka origin. Both the Indian and the Chinese cultures combined, accepted and fused happily in terms of food giving birth to an entirely new kind called the Indo-Chinese or the Indian Chinese; with the taste and flavors very different from both Indian and Chinese cuisine, it is a genre by itself. It is bold, varied, spicy – overall an experience by itself. The Indian Chinese flavors are also enjoyed by Indian and Chinese communities in Malaysia, and Singapore.
