Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday hosted lunch for visiting Paschimbanga Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee laying out 12 Dhaka delicacies with the great hilsa having its due place in the menu.
The Indian High Commission here tweeted with the list of food items served for the Paschimbanga Chief Minister.
The food items included Chingri malaikari, Rupchada fry, hilsa fry, hilsa egg fry , Sorisha ilish , Rui macher peti, Khashir rejala, Boneless chicken , mixed vegetables, Chitol kopta, smoked ilish with ring onion and capsicum served with bread and butter (starter) and Comillar rosh malai and sweet yogurt (desert).
Four hilsa items were served in the lunch as it is very popular fish in Paschimbanga as it is in Bangladesh.
During her meeting with the Bangladesh Prime Minister, the Paschimbanga Chief Minister brought the issue of hilsa scarcity in West Bengal these days, prompting Hasina to say: "Hilsa will also be available there when the water will start flowing (to Bangladesh)."
Later, Mamata attended a special business session at the city's Sonargaon Hotel in the afternoon.
Mamata arrived here on Thursday night on a three-day visit, which both the neighbours view as a visit to deepen ties between the two countries.
