The meal comprised of vegetable shammi kebab, khaman dhokla, paneer butter masala, Hyderabadi vegetable biryani and khichdi, along with Bengali delicacies like potol dolma (homemade ricotta-filled pointed gourd in a smooth coconut curry) and bagara baingan.

The meal was rounded off with a mishit sampler including rasgulla, mishit doi and exotic fruits.

A cultural programme was also hosted before the banquet in honour of Prime Minister Modi.

“A feast for the soul. Cultural Programme before the banquet hosted by PM Sheikh Hasina in honour of PM @narendramodi,” said Swarup.
