Glimpses of Bangladesh – tea break

My experience in the UK and NZ is that the refreshments at most meetings is a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit – a chocolate one if you are lucky. 

In Bangladesh it is usually tea but the accompanying snack is more substantial and varied.  The same has been true of the tea breaks during our two weeks of workshop. 

Often there is a piece of fruit – apple, grapes or Satsuma.   This will be accompanied by a sweet biscuit or two or a piece of maderia cake.  Samosa and pakora are also served and an item like a curried sausage roll.  We have also had doughnuts and palmier sugar pastries (bottom right photo).

I made a card about the snacks for my Project Life using a CZ minicard template.
