Iftar items in Chawkbazar: To eat or not to eat

With the beginning of Ramadan,  Chawkbazar, in Puran Dhaka, becomes even busier than usual.

The market bustles with shoppers from all localities while traders display a variety of iftar items from afternoon.

The most popular delicacy in Chawkbazar is the "boro baper polay khai", a mixture of chickpeas, brains, minced meat, potatoes, chira, egg, chicken, 13 spices and ghee and jilapi among others.

Other famous iftar items include giant beef and chicken roasts, suti kebab (marinated minced meat), shahi doi bora (fried and spiced lentil balls dipped in yoghurt), mutton and chicken cutlet, kima roll (a roll of chopped meat), different types of kebab, kima parata, hilsha eggs, borhani, roasts of pigeon and koyel, bundia, and different kinds of sweetmeats.

However, the aspect of hygiene in these iftar items is a big concern for the consumers.

Although the sellers claimed that they maintain proper hygiene in preparing the food items, the doubt remains.
