Bengali Chicken Curry

Updated: Jun 25, 2023

It’s Sunday Bengali chicken curry but you need to enjoy it only on Sunday. It’s a mood lifter for me. The perfume of the spices and onion with garam masala fills the room with a happy feeling. Happiness for no apparent cause. On a Sunday, what could be the sources of happiness for a middle-class Bengali family in a suburb? What else could there be but a good regional movie on DD in the afternoon, a blockbuster movie in the evening, and a possible terrific ‘football match' with friends? Birthdays and visits from family were the most common special occasions.
