Traditional winter rice cakes in Dhaka

Traditional rice cakes are a key part of the winter season in Bangladesh. The fertile land of Bengal has always yielded fresh rice at the start of Agrahayana, the first winter month in the Bangla calendar. Though Dhaka city isn’t known for its rice fields, the tradition of the winter rice cake stays alive on its streets and footpaths. Photo: Kazi Salahuddin Razu
