Bengalis love potatoes. This is the one absolute truth of their lives. There are Bongs who don’t like fish, there are Bongs who don’t like rice but you will never find a Bong who doesn’t like potatoes!!
As if potatoes were the ultimate delicacy in the world.
They eat potatoes as is & also put them in everything they cook….with every green vegetable, in chicken, mutton, fish, dal, biryani….EVERYTHING.
My office canteen had three kinds of potato dishes for lunch today. There were potatoes…potatoes…and more potatoes. And non-potato lovers like me were left looking around in amazement & (mild) disgust.
There are so many other nice vegetables & animals in this world that are available for human consumption, how about wandering outside the world of potatoes & exploring a little bit? Wanderlust is a good thing!
PS: I apologize to the Bongs reading this but they only serve potatoes & fish for lunch & I do not like either. Hmpfff.
