Bengal has long been known for its extraordinarily fertile agricultural land and paddy production. At the same time, the Bengal Rivers appear to be an infinite source of many fish species. As a result, rice and fish have been the Bengalis’ primary foods since ancient times. Apart from fish and rice, Bengal has a long tradition of vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods, the majority of which are served with rice, such as dal (lentil soup), posto (poppy-seed vegetables), fish curry, and mutton curry, and also Begalii’s love for rootis, Mughlai naans and tandoors has always been an important member of the breakfast table.
Nihari is a flavorful, slow-cooked stew made from shank meat and marrow bones. Nalli Nihari can be made with lamb, mutton, or even chicken. The meat of the shank is mostly circular thigh meat. The muscles of the upper thigh of animals are tough, dry, and full of marrow due to their bone composition. Gelatin comes from this specific sort of bone. Gelatin is a deteriorated type of collagen that releases collagen into the stew after hours of boiling.
