Bangladeshi Food

This cultural information to offer some insight into what the average Bangladeshi meal consists of.  This outline is for the traditional meal, not the one that half of Bangladeshis have. Almost always exclusively cooked by female household members.

Fried potato

Ruti

Breakfast Plate

 

Breakfast will be a little curried papaya and potato, served up with chapatis (a flatbread), bananas, and an omelette cooked with lots of katcha morich (green chillies). Cha (tea) is a necessary accompaniment, usually incredibly sweet.Breakfast is taken at sometime between 8 or 9.

 

Cha (sweet milk tea)

Samosa

Shingara

At about 11, it is tradition to eat again, taking sweet cha (brewed with cinnamon, cloves, milk and bay leaves) with a shingara (a pastry stuffed with potato, chickpeas, peanuts and lentils) and a samosa. In the small restaurants and shacks, piles of shingaras and samosas can be seen growing each morning.

Dal

Lunch is a liberally timed affair. Almost  at 1-3pm. A huge bowl of rice will appear. On top of this is piled a vegetable curry, or a meat/fish dish. Once the plate is empty, it starts again with more rice and a dahl, a watery soup of lentils and onions and chillies. On the side is usually a plate of lemon and cucumber slices and green chillies. Most Bengalis will eat these chillies raw.

Lunch will sometimes include a very solid mashed potato, a tomato chutney, fish balls, aubergine balls, tomato, coriander and chilli salad or an egg dish.

 

Puri

Dal puri

Piaji(onion + flour of pulse + green chile)

Chanachur

In the afternoon the fast food places start again and people will eat dahlpuri, a pastry style savoury snack stuffed with lentils or potato, or some onion bahjis, or chanachur.

 

 

Chicken grill

Shami kebab

Dinner can be between 8 and 11, and is either a repeat of lunch, or will be a kebab. Chicken or beef is well cooked over open coals and eaten with a riata (onion, cucumber and yoghurt) and ruti (naan bread).
