List of Bangladeshi dishes

This is a list of Bangladeshi dishes. Bangladeshi cuisine refers to the food and culinary traditions prevalent in Bangladesh. Dating far in the past, the cuisine emphasizes fish, vegetables and lentils served with rice. Because of differences in history and Bangladeshi geography, the cuisine is rich in regional variations. While having unique traits, Bangladeshi cuisine is closely related to that of surrounding Bengali and North-East Indian, with rice and fish traditional favorites. Bangladesh also developed the only multi-course tradition from the Indian subcontinent. It is known as Bengali Kita styled cuisine. The Bangladeshi food is served by course rather than all at one time.[1]
