'We speak food in Kolkata' reads their Instagram profile.
They will tell you where you can get delicious mishti doi (sweet curd), kosha mangsho (spicy Bengali mutton curry), etc. and non-Bengali food like crunchy iceberg dumplings, ice cream sandwiches, pyramid-shaped sticky rice dumplings, etc.

It is the brainchild of food blogger and photographer Debjani Chatterjee Alam, who makes Bengali cooking so vibrant and effortless.

Her followers are hooked to pics which document her typical Bengali cooking ways like marinating fish with salt and turmeric powder (nun hulud makhano). Every food pic she posts like tempting two-in-one sandesh, ghol, taler bora (sugar palm fritters), etc is desirable.

A food blogger from Kolkata, Chitrangada Kundu calls herself a 'food photographer and recipe developer' too.
Her blog is a winning combination of two things: her love for food and some deadly captions.
You will become her fan if you take one look at all the food she makes like piping hot koraishutir kochuris (green pea stuffed fried flat bread), muri ghonto (fish cooked with aromatic rice and spice, above) and rang alur puli pithe (deep fried sweet potato dumplings), just to name a few.
