The festive season is here and so is the time for the biggest Bengali festival of the year - Durga Puja. Durga Puja is just around the corner and people from across Bengal are gearing up to celebrate it with much grandeur. It is a five-day extravaganza that starts on the sixth day (Sasthi) of Navratri and ends with Vijaya Dashami (Dussehra). This year, Durga Puja celebration begins on October 1, 2022 and concludes on October 5, 2022. During this time, people put on new dresses; go pandal hopping and of course, go on a bingeing spree. Food has a major role to play during the celebration. For these five days, every one keeps their diet thoughts at bay and indulge in various delicious dishes. Restaurants too come up with Puja special menu to cater to their patrons' needs.
