A popular Banglaedeshi snack - the bakarkhani which is a type of layered bread. It is thought that the Bangladeshi bakarkhani may have its roots in Kashmir and arrived via the northern regions. Although the bread is similar to a paratha, the name Bakarkhani appears only in Kashmir and Bangladesh. The bread is made by stretching a sheet of dough repeatedly and interleaving with ghee before baking on a tandoor or tawa. The best they say are bought in Old Dhaka.
This is taken in Old Dhaka and they were delicious.

I bet that bread tasted good! A well composed with lots of interesting shapes and textures as well as the beautiful low light levels I enjoyed very much. Love the setting and a quiet moment between them and this shop reminds me of the antiques store which add lots of atmosphere. Addition of strong red colour is vital here thus anchors the eye superbly. This is a fine job, street photography is not easy but you have a great capture here. The subject is the image....
Really very good, Congrats

Funny that this bakarkhani is found only in Bangladesh & Kashmir & I do not remember this at all in Northern India...do you(you are as much an Indian as I am :-))?
Made in tandoor style, looks delicious. You handled the exposure well and I loved this DL picture!
