About Chena Posto (Cottage Cheese with Poppy Seeds)

Many famous Bengali dishes evolved around the influences of various foreign cuisines that came to India. Till date the Bengali Kitchen occasionally flavours up with traditional cooking - the recipes descend from our great great grandmothers to us. Bengali’s are famously identified as fish lovers, but the bengali cuisine has an ample collection of vegetarian dishes too. Although very simple and cooked with less ingredients/spices they have so much flavour. Call it the Pannch Mishali or Shukto, or the Posto dishes, they are very unique in taste and have the subtle sense of classiness. Posto/Poppy Seeds are widely used. Today the dish I am sharing is a part of the Ghoti Cuisine.
