Nomoskar Bangla: Taftoon Launches Mumbai’s Bengali Food Festival from 21st to 27th of November

Taftoon, the iconic Indian restaurant brand in Mumbai focusing on regional Indian cuisine, is celebrating its 5th Anniversary by hosting a week-long Bengali food festival at both its BKC and Powai outlets.


Taftoon will focus on the romantic state of Bengal, showcasing delicious vegetarian delights such as Shukto, a strongly-flavored, bitter-sweet stew medley of vegetables cooked in mustard oil and milk largely spiced with panch-phoron, Potoler Dorma, with stuffed pointed gourd in a quintessentially Bengali curry, tempered with radhuni or celery seeds in aromatic mustard oil and Mocchar Jhol a luscious dumpling made of banana flower, deep fried and stewed in Bengali masala spiced curry amongst others. The versatile menu also includes delectable non-vegetarian options like Kosha Mangsho (mutton) or Murgir (Chicken), a true labour of love and a Bengali celebration icon, this mutton or chicken dish is marinated in a secret mix before being slow-cooked in a traditional way for hours to achieve a fall off the bone consistency, Daab Chingri, a flavoursome dish consisting prawns cooked with onion paste, ghee and coconut flesh inside the tender green coconut shell, then sealed and baked in the oven. A delicious coastal specialty is the Macher Paturi which includes Bhetki Fish marinated with their signature mustard and coconut paste, enveloped and steamed in a banana leaf. Additionally, the menu doles out some must-try mouth-watering desserts such as Mishti Doi, aclassic Bengali sweet made with milk, curd culture, and caramelized sugar, as well as Malai Coconut Payesh, a savory treat that is nothing short of food heaven as this one is a heady romance of coconut and condensed milk poured over Angoori Rosogulla with a luxury of pistachios.

The outlets will provide limited seats daily to enjoy Bengal’s most iconic dishes in a thali format, paired with newly concocted cocktails designed to best showcase local ingredients. All meals will indulgently come with succulent accompaniments, inspired directly from a Bengali home kitchen, such as Gondharaj Lemon with Onions, Bengali Tamatar Chutney (Aamsotto Khejur Tomato Chutney), Mango mustard oil pickle, Radhaballavi Luchi & Bangla Lachha Paratha, Cholar Dal, and more.
