Bangladeshi Foods

This morning I took a little time to think about places I normally never think about, the ones that cross my mind every blue moon or maybe one we’ve never blogged much about. If my memory serves me correct we haven’t focused too much on Bangladesh in the past, so today I’m providing a small sampling on Bangladeshi foods.

The first thought that comes to mind when hearing Bangladesh is another border country a lot like India. (I could get blasted for that one.) The people, the food, the culture, etc. Though my assumptions could be very wrong it doesn’t appear that the food strays too far from the Indian foods I’ve had in the past. This Virtual Bangladesh site is a wonderful place to start if you want to start fine tuning your Bangladeshi cooking skills. Rice, bread, poultry, fish and sweets recipes are all listed with the level of difficulty if you’re worried about totally messing things up. Start with the Bangladeshi Egg Haloa or the Shandesh, a fresh cheese dessert, which are both rather easy to prepare.
