Bangladesh today shows a much greater Muslim influence than West Bengal. Mutton Chaanp The influence on the food was from the top down, and more gradual than in many other parts of India. This led to a unique cuisine where even commoners ate the dishes of the royal court, such as biryani , korma and bhuna.
The influence was reinforced in the Raj era, when Kolkata became the place of refuge for many prominent exiled Nawabs , especially the family of Tipu Sultan from Mysore and Wajid Ali Shah , the ousted Nawab of Awadh. The exiles brought with them hundreds of cooks and masalchis spice mixers , and as their royal patronage and wealth diminished, they became interspersed into the local population.
These cooks came with the knowledge of a very wide range of spices most notably jafran saffron and mace , the extensive use of ghee as a method of cooking, and special ways of marinating meats.
Mutton Rezala In Bangladesh , this food has over time become the staple food of the populace. In West Bengal, however, this has remained, more than the other categories, the food of professional chefs; the best examples are still available at restaurants.
Specialties include chap ribs slow cooked on a tawa , rezala meat in a thin yogurt and cardamom gravy and the famous kathi roll kebabs in a wrap.
The local population absorbed some of the ingredients and techniques into their daily food, resulting in meat-based varieties of many traditional vegetarian dishes, but the foods remained largely distinct. The Mughal influence is most distinct in preparations involving meat, especially mutton. However, even chicken and other meats became more prevalent. The influence was also seen in desserts; traditional desserts were based on rice pastes and jaggery but under the Mughal influence moved towards significantly increased use of milk, cream and sugar along with expensive spices such as cardamom and saffron.
Anglo-Indian or Raj influence[ edit ] Chicken kabiraji cutlet in Kolkata, December Anglo-Indian food is not purely the result of the influence of the British; Bengal was once the home of a French colony, and also hosted populations of Portuguese, Dutch, and other Europeans.
These collective western influences are seen in the foods created to satisfy the tastes of the western rulers. The result is a unique cuisine, local ingredients adapted to French and Italian cooking techniques—characterised by creamy sauces, the restrained use of spices, and new techniques such as baking.
Raj-era cuisine lives on especially in the variety of finger foods popularised in the 'pucca' clubs of Kolkata, such as mutton chop, kabiraji cutlet or fish orly. The British also influenced food in a somewhat different way. Many British families in India hired local cooks, and through them discovered local foods.
The foods had to be toned down or modified to suit the tastes of the " memsahibs ". Bangladeshi-style chow mein Chinese pork roll The Chinese of Kolkata originally settled into a village called Achipur south of Kolkata in the late 18th century, later moving into the city and finally into its present home in Tangra at the eastern edge of Kolkata.
The Chinese-origin people of Kolkata form a substantial and successful community with a distinct identity. With this identity came Chinese food, available at almost every street corner in Kolkata at present, due to the taste, quick cooking procedure, and no similarity with the original Chinese recipe other than the use of soy sauce. They were mostly Cantonese tradesmen and sailors who first settled down here and decided to cook with whatever items they had at hand. The influence of this unique syncretic cuisine cannot be overstated; it is available in every town in India and Bangladesh as "Chinese" food.
Bengali immigrants to other countries have started carrying this abroad as well; Indian Chinese restaurants have appeared in many places in the United States and UK. Indian Chinese food was given a second boost when a large number of Tibetans migrated into Indian Territory, following the 14th Dalai Lama 's flight.
Tibetans brought with them their own delicacies to add to this genre, such as the very popular momo a kind of dumpling or thukpa a hearty noodle soup. Tibetans and Nepali immigrants also found ready employment in kitchens and helped power the many eateries that serve this unique fusion on virtually every street in Kolkata.
The chop suey became a favorite, and versions like "American chop suey" and "Chinese chop suey" were constantly talked about. The medium of cooking is mustard oil which adds on its own pungency.
Another very important item of Bengali cuisine is the variety of sweets or mishti as they call them. Most of them are milk-based and are prepared from 'chhana' ponir as it is popularly known. After graduation, she worked at a family planning clinic in Mymensingh for a while, then practised at the gynaecology department of Mitford hospital and at the anaesthesia department of Dhaka Medical College hospital. While she studied and practised medicine, she saw girls who had been raped; she also heard women cry out in despair in the delivery room if their baby was a girl.
Nasrin suffered a number of physical and other attacks for her critical scrutiny of Islam and her demand for women's equality.
Hundreds of thousands fanatics took to the streets demanding her execution by hanging. In October , a radical fundamentalist group called the Council of Islamic Soldiers offered a bounty for her death. A few hundred thousand demonstrators called her "an apostate appointed by imperial forces to vilify Islam"; a member of a "militant faction threatened to set loose thousands of poisonous snakes in the capital unless she was executed.
She returned to the East and relocated to Kolkata, India, in , where she lived until After she was physically attacked by Muslim fanatics in Hyderabad, she was forced to live under house arrest in Kolkata and finally she was thrown out of West Bengal in 22 November She was then forced to live under house arrest in Delhi for 3 months. She had no other alternative but to leave India in She was not allowed to live in India for a while, but ultimately Nasrin, determined to live in the subcontinent moved to India from USA.
Her Bangladeshi passport had been revoked; she was granted citizenship by the Swedish government and took refuge in Germany. In she wrote Meyebela, My Bengali Girlhood her biographical account from birth to adolescence. She never got a Bangladeshi passport to return to the country when her mother,  and later her father,[ citation needed ] were on their death beds. In March , she visited Mumbai to promote a translation of her novel Shodh translated by Marathi author Ashok Shahane, the book was called Phitam Phat.
Secular "atheist" groups seized upon the occasion to celebrate freedom of expression, while "radical fundamentalist groups While living in Kolkata, Nasrin regularly contributed to Indian newspapers and magazines, including Anandabazar Patrika and Desh , and, for some time, wrote a weekly column in the Bengali version of The Statesman. Again her criticism of Islam was met with opposition from religious fundamentalists: in June , Syed Noorur Rehaman Barkati, the imam of Kolkata's Tipu Sultan Mosque , admitted offering money to anyone who "blackened [that is, publicly humiliated] Ms Nasreen's face.
The group's president, Tauqeer Raza Khan , said the only way the bounty would be lifted was if Nasrin "apologises, burns her books and leaves. A protest organised by the militant islamist "All India Minority Forum" caused chaos in the city and forced the army's deployment to restore order.
This is about politics. In the last three months I have been put under severe pressure to leave [West] Bengal by the police.
Nasrin moved to Sweden in and later worked as a research scholar at New York University. Currently her visa received a one-year extension in and Nasreen is also seeking permanent residency in India but no decision has been taken on it by the Home Ministry  In Nasrin was supposedly threatened with death by Al Qaeda-linked extremists, and so the Center for Inquiry assisted her in traveling to the United States, where she now lives.
