Hi, a friendly comment on the very generalized comment about Indian cuisine being heavier and oilier than Bangladeshi...that's not always the case! The umbrella of Indian cuisine covers everything from the lightest of dals and flavorful "sabzi's" to rich and sumptuous offerings such as pulao, paranthas and curries, but it's the region it's from that makes a big difference. Mostly, North Indian cuisine can tend to be on the richer side as compared to Central and Southern Indian, however every region offers specialties which can be quite rich or very light depending upon the skills of the chef and the taste of the person eating it. It's just that most restaurants don't offer home-made style fare which is often healthier and doesn't rely on lots of butter, so they enhance it with cream or butter to make it more attractive. Even Bangla cuisine, I'm sure, has its heavy and fried fare, especially fried fish! Indian cuisine is one of the most varied in the world! ANY cuisine can be made with a lighter touch, be it the spices or the oil, but the skills of the chef make a huge difference. Thank You!
