Celebrate Puja with the best curry in Town!!

During Durga Puja as you walk through the crowded streets, the city comes alive with revelry and devotion towards Goddess Durga. As a young child, I remember holding my Papa’s finger taking small steps while raising my heels to catch a glimpse of Durga Ma’s embellished avatar.
