Kerala and Bengal, though located in different parts of India, has couple of common factors like daily diet of rice-fish and Communism. Being a part of a Keralite family, it goes without saying that we have sea food in our daily diet. Plus having a best friend who is a Bengali, it goes without saying that I have tried and relished all Bengali fish delicacies. The style of preparing fish in Kerala and Bengal are poles apart mainly the use of coconut oil v. mustard oil and sea fish v. fresh water fish. Though the tastes are no way similar, I absolutely finger-lickingly love these strikingly different cuisines. My small speech about these two cuisines finds relevance in my recent trip to the local fish market in Accra, another coastal city.
Sharing some clicks from the market
I must say you got be a mix of factors to be here for shopping- a bit of adventure, not freaky about cleanliness, dont mind the fish market smell and ready to bargain to really experience such local market places, whether it be India or Africa. What is guaranteed is fresh catch at the best prices. Otherwise, supermarkets are the safest places for you
