It’s the last day of Durga Puja, a celebration of good winning over evil and highlight of the Bengali religious calendar.

I made it to the pandal (marquee) on Friday, only to be told to leave within an hour thanks to a queue of 400 people outside waiting to get in.

Thankfully, I’d made it to the bhog (food offering) table in time to grab some delicious khichuri (khichri), mango chutney and mishti.

Recipes to follow soon. Shubho bijoya dashami to all of you in the meantime…
