my family has some history in East Pakistan. my mom knows my dad loves fish a lot (from his Dhaka days) so she makes fish biryani for him sometimes, along with other fish recipes. she said the recipes were passed down to her from her side of the family that lived in East Pakistan. so first time i had fish biryani was in Karachi, and i still have it now in Bahrain if i go the Bangladeshi small restaurants.Where do you find fish biryani ?
my dad always says to eat fish, it makes you smarter, like Bengalis, who i was told eat a lot of fish because of Bay of Bengal and all the rivers. maybe younger Bangladeshi generation are more McDonald-ised and the older Bangladeshi generations prefer fish?We like meat more than fish.
