    This is a very versatile item in bengali cuisine. After the bengali festival durga Puja, there's a tradition of all friends and relatives visiting each other wishing good luck and happiness. One of the typical items served at this occasion is ghugni which is popular among kids. Till now I fondly relish those memories of how eagerly we waited for it to be served when we visited our relatives. Try it and hope you and your kids will enjoy.
