Here's a photo of the #Shagorana #taal I decorated with the help of my zaals (husband's sister in laws) yesterday for my niece's nikkah (formal marriage ceremony/wedding vows). My second zaal cooked a whole #chicken and made the #pilau rice and I took over decorating with the help of my third zaal.
In Bengali tradition a Shagorana taal is presented to the groom by the bride's side of the family for feasting on at the wedding banquet. The chicken is often covered with the pilau and when the groom and friends/family begin to eat the taal, there is a furore in hunting for the chicken!! 😄😄 The taal should be colourful and be a feast for the eyes and whilst this was a quick 20 minute job (anyone who is Bengali will know we run late and there's lots to do with very little time), it sure was colourful! 😍😍😍 ____
