I am a newlywed, who grew up outside of Bangladesh all her life. When I got married, my father bought me "Siddika Kabir's Recipe Book" in English (as I cannot read Bengali very well). I was looking for more dishes to try, when I came across your blog. Thank you for your recipes b/c most of the other Bangladeshi recipe blogs are in Bengali, and the ones in English are for Kolkata Bengali recipes.
