Ilish dry or Nona Ilish is very much famous in both the Bengal. Nona Ilish is salt treated Ilish or Hilsa in earthen pot or terracotta pot and comes into existence when Fresh Ilish is not available. But Nona Ilish gives the same taste as fresh Ilish or little tastier than the fresh one. The fisherman sun dries the Ilish and preserves them with Salt. The Fisherman makes layers of Ilish Fish and Salt one over another and places in earthen pot till its filled and then finally the top is filled with salt. The pot is placed below the earth for preservation process to complete.
The fish can be prepared by different types of masala including shorshe preparations. But be informed that Nona Ilish or Sun dried Ilish contains high amount of salt and needs washing in hot water and of course no additional salt to be used during the cooking. Soak the fish in l water and change of water is required every 2-3 hours. Repeat the process at least 2 times to get rid of extra salt which is very important.
NO ADDITIONAL SALT IN COOKING
There are few who soak the Nona Ilish in hot water and change water till the salt content is reduced. NO – salted Ilish does not smell like any other dry fish. It does not even smell like fermented. It is same as fresh Ilish and taste the same. Please do not treat Nona Ilish like dry fish of shutki fish and if you are you will be doing great injustice to Nona Ilish which again a Bengali or Bangal delicacy in both the Bengal.
There are several recipes available on-line which will help in preperation of famous and delicate fish. Plesae refer the following links OR google for best receipes.
Bengal Online Shop – Purwaaii.Com brings you the famous Portuguese and makes it available online . A cheesy affair for which you do not have to visit Kolkata or Bandel . All you need is to visit http://www.purwaaii.com and place your order . Hoteliers and Chefs who deal with fine dine may place order and get delivery at door step but they must have a sharp knife .
Bandel or Bandal cheese is a Local Portuguese cheese made in Bengal where Portuguese settlement in Bengal existed and perhaps the last few traces of Portuguese culinary expertise / cuisine . (Bandel is located 50 Kms North Of Kolkata)
There are two types of bandel cheese Smoked and salted
Nolen Gur the Palm Date Jaggery which makes all the difference . We all know about Rasgulla which is made out of cottage cheese “Chana”or Chana” dipped in Sugar Syrup. Just think if it is made out of Pam Date Jaggery and dipped in Date Palm Jaggery . Origin of Rasgulla or Rasogolla is disputed. Some say it originated from Odisha and others say its from Bengal.
Irrespective of its origin Rasgulla or Rasogolla is the King of Sweets / Desserts. But to our understanding who owns Rasgulla doesn’t matter …. Keep enjoying the Rasgulla especiall the Nolen Gur Rasgulla ….
Purwaaii.Com – Bengal Online for food items online delivery across India has started taking orders and dispatching the same during the season
We shall be writing more … Customers may place their orders online . Visit : http://purwaaii.com/
In Bengal Palm Date Syrup is known as Jhola Gur or Jhola Nolen or Some Times Nolen . Nolen Gur is produced at Canary Islands other than West Bengal and Bangladesh .
Sealdah a part of Kolkata is flooded with Nolen – Jhola Gur during the season and sometimes before the season with adulterated , chemical infused Jaggery syrup with lot of synthetic essence. Getting pure Nolen gur is a matter of luck now days . It has become a matter of past and mostly the duplicate or synthetic nolen – Jhola gur is purchased out of compulsion and in a hurry to buy the product first.
People hardly wait for the season to start and the production to take place . Farmers wait for the right kind of condition to extract the sap but customers do have little patience and in the bargain unscrupulous elements take the advantage of selling wrong adulterated chemical essence infused product which is highly damaging .
Due to disturbance in weather pattern it is seen last few years the onset of winter is little late and the product comes very late . Low temperature weather is the right condition for the production sap and then the patali gur and then the nolen – jhola gur .
Purwaaii.Com is procuring from its sources from Basirhat and is available at better price than others at www.purwaaii.com
Customers may proceed to have their share of Nolen- Jhola Gur and make their stock for sankranti and other occasions .

Noooooo ……. We are not talking about King Of Good Times ….
King of Flavors and King of Good Limes is Gandhoraj Lebu . Many times its thought that Bhapa Ilish gets its status with Gandhoraj Lebu. Gandhoraj has many uses in the Culinary world and especially in Bengali Cuisine . Many excerpts has written about Gandhoraj Lime or Lebu what ever …. Experts also claim that Thai people have Kaffir , Caribbeans do have Lime .. Bengalis do have Gandhoraj Lebu ..
Its claimed by some experts that its Rangpur Lime a place in East Bengal .

As we proceed for the spring , the production of Patali Gur gets reduced . The production of sweet sap is linked with cold climate . More Cold means more production of the sweet sap and the higher quality of production. The temperature gradually increases and the production gets lesser and stops . We will have to wait for the next season . …
