Thanks suvro that brought a lot of questions up for me, if you don't mind to helping answer--I don't mind responses from others also.
Is that the restaurants here? Or is Bengali food of East Bengal actually, " much more oily, and most gravies taste the same with the same muddy texture"? Especially their home cooking? How does it compare to restaurants in Calcutta and West Bengal? You mentioned home cooking. Is Bengal part of South India? I always thought there were a lot of cultural similarities between South Indians and Bengalis, but I didn't think Bengalis considered themselves apart of South India.
Thanks for the recc-ies . . . Happy belated Independence Day for India . . .
