Sharodiya Shubecha and Pujor Recipes

These are special autumn days or "Ashwin mash" as in Bengali calendar.This is the time when every Bengali is very active in terms of food, socializing, wishing, shopping and what not.
I don’t have anything particular today on this auspicious day of "Bodhon  or Shashti "except my list of Pujo cooking.As Pujo means good food with good company of friends and family.Pujo also means  Ashtami Pushpanjali ,and ofcourse Shahsti for married ladies.

Meanwhile here is a list of good food for this Puja (and many more Pujas to come...) for you can make and surprise your family.
