There is a general belief that this supposedly Bengali delicacy originated from Portugal. It is said that Portuguese cuisine had a great influence along the shores of Bengal. Is Shukto really a Bengali Dish? Let`s find about its origin.

As far as I know, Shukto is the traditional dish of Bengal. I don`t think it can be a Portuguese dish.

During the Portuguese rule in India, they had a preparation of bitter gourd which was used as a mouth freshener. The Bengalis fell in love with the dish and adapted it to their tastes through addition to give rise to `Shukto`.
