Food is something our body needs to maintain life,growth and nourishment.
In Bengal our staple food is rice.It is grown in large quantities and the weather
is suitable for growing it. We eat a lot of rice.The best combination of rice is
fish.We have several kinds of fish,they range from very tiny ones to very large.
Not all the fish is available throughout the year, some of them are seasonal.
We grow a variety of vegetables and they are available in particular seasons.
In winter we get all our favourite vegetables,e.g tomatoes,potatoes,cauliflower,
lettuce etc. We grow variety of lentils; the most popular lentil is masoor,it is
cheaper than moong .Masoor dal(lentil) is cooked daily in our homes. Masoor dal
is called the poor man’s beef. Among fish, Hilsa fish is very popular.
