The authentic Bengali lunch or dinner in Kalyani will have rice as its staple ingredient which will be eaten with daal (or lentil soup) and shukto, a bitter vegetable preparation. The dal is eaten with various fried items or bhaja, most prominently the aloo bhaja (fried potato) or begun bhaja (eggplant fries). This is followed by the main course which traditionally consists of mustard oil fried fish curry. Bengal’s location beside the River Ganges makes freshwater fishes a traditional element of its culture and lifestyle.

Meat or egg curry is also sometimes taken. The meal is traditionally signed off with a tomato-khejur-amshotto chutney (a combination of tomato pulp, date and dried raw mangoes) followed by an ubiquitous Bengali sweet dish, the payesh which is a variant of kheer (cooked by boiling rice in milk with sugar) and rosogolla, a syrupy cheese based dessert.
