A Weekend That Passed By

The weekend of 11th August passed by with lot of amusements. Food and photography were the key focus!

I accompanied a Bengali friend of mine to try authentic Bengali food at a restaurant in Koramangala called Bangaliana ( 1st B Main, Koramangala 7th Block). Being a vegetarian I can’t do complete justice to the culinary skills of Bengal but it’s always a thrill to investigate a cuisine for tasty vegetarian options. And here I found – the delicious  Aaloo Posto – A dish made of potato and poppy seeds and Suktor Jhol made of raw banana and other vegetables.  Also extremely thin sliced potato wafers called Aaloo Bhaja was a nice snack. For desert, we had Rasagola and my favorite Misti dohi (Flavored yoghurt – fresh and yummy).

 
On Sunday morning (Aug -12th) at around 6:30AM we were at Lalbagh for some photography; where of course I spotted the boy who sold dreams. :-) It was interesting how a crowd was gathered to get a glimpse of the follower show. Here are few impressions from the photo shoot.

    The photographs were awesome, esp the colors of the flowers, but the best was the speeding scooters.
