The main food of Bangladesh is Rice. We usually take rice two times a day. At lunch and dinner. Rice is the main dish in the meal, but we have other side dishes too. At least two side dishes containing protein sources like fish or meat and one vegetable source. We eat a lot rice, which is not very healthy anyways, but we kinda like it, you know? πŸ˜‰

So, today my husband wanted some rich food for lunch. It was 2 pm then, we were already late for lunch. So, I needed to do something quick. Like I said before, I’m always in kind of hurry when it comes to food. lol :p

Fried rice is not actually bengali dish though. But I made it in a bengali way. The ingredients you need are:

  1. 1 and a 1/2 cup of cooked rice with salt
  2. Mixed vegetables: 1/2 cup
  3. Shrimp: 2 tbsp
  4. Chicken breast: 1 tbsp
  5. Olive oil 4 tbsp
  6. Egg
  7. Half cup onion cut in to pieces
  8. 1 big green pepper
  9. 2 tsp soy sauce
  10. 1 tsp ginger & garlic paste
  11. Salt as your taste

Heat the pan with oil and put everything without rice. Cook them well. And finally add rice and cook for 5-7 minutes and you are done.

This saucy spicy chicken is the easiest recipe you will ever have and hell yeah it’s tasty too! So, here’s what you need:

  1. 5-6 pieces of chicken
  2. 1 green pepper
  3. Half cup onion cut chopped in pieces
  4. 1 tbsp ginger & garlic paste
  5. 1 tsp chili powder
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  7. Quarter tsp coriander
  8. Β Salt
  9. Half cup tomato sauce
  10. 2 tbsp chili sauce
  11. 4 tbsp barbecue sauce
  12. 2 tbsp soy sauce
  13. 1/2 tsp vinegar
  14. 1 tsp lemon juice

First put oil in your pan and heat it well. Then put the chicken pieces and fry them well on both sides. Then take the chickens out of the pan, and put everything else except vinegar and lemon juice. Cook them all for like 5 minutes. Now, put the chickens. Few minutes later, add lemon juice and vinegar. Cook it in a medium heat.

I’m not sure if you guys ever heard of “Chop”, which is nothing but a kebab. A really famous one in Bangladesh. To make a chop, you need some smashed potatoes, add some onions, peppers, spices and salt of course. Make small balls out of them and dip it in beaten eggs first and roll in the bread crumbs and deep fry it in oil. Making chop is really easy one. You can always add others vegetables, fish or meat in a chop. And trust me, the taste is something you will never forget! ^_^

It’s not like we bengali people always eat this kind of unhealthy food. But, it is kinda tradition of making some good food during a holiday or weekend, when every member of the family stays home. πŸ™‚

So, that’s all for today! Bye!! ❀ ❀
