The other favourite served at weddings as well as private dinners is the uniquely Bengali Muslim dish, the rezala. This is made with khashi meat and, though not overly spicy, tends to linger on the palate. The milk and the saffron in the dish produce a beautifully tinted gravy, while the sharp fragrance of the green chillies combines with other elements to produce a most unforgettable bouquet. No doubt there are minor variations that good cooks bring to their rezala, but the one I was taught by my friend’s mother seems fairly standard.
