The region is popular for its non-vegetarian dishes,especially the seafood preparations. Seafood is any form of sea life regarded as food by humans. This food prominently includes fish and shellfish. Shellfish include various species of molluscs, crustaceans, and echinoderms. These scrumptious dishes are made from freshwater fish, particularly carp (common varieties include rohu, katla and mrigal). Caught from the many winding rivers that flow through the region, the fish are cooked and served almost immediately to retain their juiciness and fresh flavors. If seafood is something that makes you go weak in the knees, then you have arrived at the right place.
