Which food comes to your mind when it is Easter? Easter eggs? Hard-boiled, Coloured Easter Eggs have been show-stoppers since time immemorial. Considered as a resurrection of Jesus, the tradition says that the eggs used to be coloured red as a symbol of bloodshed during the crucifixion of Jesus. A full meal at Easter is more than easter eggs. Pieces of bread and pastries, especially the Hot Cross Buns, meat and egg dishes to cakes and cookies; all complete a wholesome Easter meal. Lamb and egg comprise as most essential part of any Easter meal across the globe. If you are in Kolkata, this Easter - check out these places for a sumptuous Easter meal.
