Under the British Raj, Railway journeys were a luxury. The railway staff cooked dishes with locally available ingredients which were also heavily influenced by ethnicity. The Railway Mutton Curry in Kolkata, now popularly a part of Raj cuisine, was one such dish. It was heavily tempered with South Indian spices (rye, curry leaves etc.), perhaps because many of the railway cooks hailed from the south. Oh! Calcutta serves one of the most delectable railway mutton curries which is best relished with steamed Gobindobhog rice, and a refreshing Chowringee mocktail add to an ultimate experience!
