A twist on festive feasts

Monkey Bar has come up with a special small plates menu, titled Pujor Adda, for Durga Puja. The selection hopes to capture the culinary diversity of Kolkata and adds a contemporary twist to some of the local dishes. Take, for instance, the kosha mangsho slider, which is pulled mutton sandwiched in a milk bun. There is also the moong and jowar pakoda chaat topped with pomegranate and raw mango chutney, radhuni murgi tikka, and more. The Pujor Adda special is available at Monkey Bar Kolkata and Delhi till 9 October

Dream-like artworks

There are layers of meaning in Jahangir Asgar Jani’s watercolours, currently on display at Gallery Latitude 28. As the artist steps away from sculptures and moves towards watercolours, he gets the opportunity to play with light and create works that are fluid and ephemeral. “Pareidolia: Songs of (Dis)Belief asks you, the viewer, to shed preconceived notions as you navigate Jahangir Asgar Jani’s watercolours,” mentions the curatorial note. “Each image reveals a grid, which gives the work a robust structure. Thus framed, but not constrained, calligraphy and architectural form overlap, and around them, birds fly, soaring and diving, unrestrained.” The exhibition can be viewed at Gallery Latitude 28, Lado Sarai, till 5 October, Monday to Saturday, 11 am to 7 pm
