Bangla Ranna is not just another cookbook of Bengali cuisine. It is the first book in English on Bengali cooking with step-by-step instructions. It also specifies the exact quantities of ingredients which help in preparing each dish to perfection.

This book contains over 200 tried and tested recipes ranging from starters-shukto to vegetable dishes including chochories and dalnas, to fish, shell fish, poultry and meats-and ending with desserts and sweets.

There are special sections on jhol khabar (snacks) and on Anglo-Indian specialties. Compiled in the order of “eating the Bengali way”, there are over 50 vegetarian recipes with family specialties like khoshar chochorie [stir fry vegetable peels]

This new edition of Bangla Ranna has been revised and updated with special recipes for microwave cooking. A must for every cook, beginner or gourmet.
