#MadeWithLicious – Bhoger Mangsho

Recipe by #MadeWithLicious winner Sarmistha Sengupta

This recipe is based on a traditional recipe for preparing the meat of the
sacrificial goat to be offered to the goddess Kali as “bhog” or prasadam
during Kali puja in Bengal. In some places, this is also prepared during
Dussehra to be offered to goddess Durga Mahisasura Mardini. No onion or
garlic is used in the recipe because they are considered to be tamasik – full
of “negative energy” and unsuitable for the goddess.
