The History of Spaghetti

The History of Spaghetti: The Pasta Supreme

The world of cuisine and eateries Italian items have a special place. There are quite a few food items that have become international hits. Pizzas have become a staple of fast food that has been adopted by the world’s biggest fast food franchises after hitting the U.S shores. But this one is not the only one. The Spaghetti item is one of the most iconic dinner items that has caught the attention of the world’s foodies. While a new foodie might think, “it’s noodles”, It has a further reaching effect. Let’s see the History of Spaghetti to get an idea of this Italiano Import.

Historical Origins

The Roman Empire became a force that conquered a huge area in the ancient periods. Through war, they came in contact with many types of cultures. One of the cultures they got acquainted with was the Arabic and Mespotamian cultures. In Arabian cultures flour based foods such as “Itriya” were quite popular. As a part of a conquest, the Arab empire managed to take over Sicily at a certain period of time. It became a base for the pasta dishes that eventually became Pasta.

After the first and second world wars, there were many Sicilian inhabitants who immigrated to the U.S. . If you follow the history of some of the most popular foods spread after coming to the U.S shores. Similarly, Spaghetti and other types of pasta also became quite popular. 

Spaghetti Like Many Italian Dishes, Spaghetti was also made popular by Italian immigrants

Textural Origins

Unlike French Fries, the origins of Spaghetti starts from the popular belief. Italian Spaghetti is the alpha version, without a doubt. We in Bangladesh like to label a certain type of dish Pasta. Whereas,  pastas are special flour based food items that exist in Italian cuisine. 

While there are many types of pasta, Spaghetti is special in its size, shape and texture. Pasta in itself may have been brought from China by Marco Polo. Then, the formula morphed into many variations. Spaghetti is one of those variations. In terms of the Spaghetti meaning, the word comes from the Italian word, Spago which means “string”. Unlike the soft pasta variations, its texture is more chewy. 

The originators made Spaghetti especially to be with Tomato sauces and virgin oil. At present, spaghetti goes with vegetables and also meatballs. Meatballs, though, have a special history themselves. 

Currently, January 4th, Spaghetti day is celebrated all over the world. It has become one of the most recognizable Italian dishes in the world. That is true for Bangladeshi restaurants as well. You can order your favorite Spaghetti dishes from your favorite restaurants from Hungrynaki!

The History of French Fries banner

History of French Fries : How French Are They?

If you have never heard of french fries then, I assume you don’t really like fast food. Most people who have had fast food in general in their life have ordered french fries with their burgers or just the fries on their own. This is the fundamental fast food item and its origins trace back to the 1700s or so. But that certain statement has some critics. One of the most common fast food items has one of the most debated origins. So, let’s dive into the history of french fries.

Origins: Is it really french?

The heading is kind of a shocker isn’t it? If you think that the french fries are really “French” then you are partially right, but only partially. Many historians agree that the true origins of french fries start from Belgium. Southern Belgian cities do speak french. The villagers in Belgium depended on the fish. 

Meuse River played a role in the origins of French Fries

The Meuse river had plenty of fish that villagers would catch and slice up to fry. But in the harsh winter season the river would freeze up and fish would not be an option. They would then depend on potatoes. They would slice and fry the potatoes in thin pieces. If you wanted to know who invented french fries, then the probable answer would be the Belgian villagers. 

The U.S and French Confusion

Thomas Jefferson made French Fries Popular during in the U.S

Now, at the times of global conflicts like the first world war and so, U.S soldiers would be stationed in specific places. Belgium and France would be one of those places. The soldiers liked the items so much that they would constantly order fries. President Thomas Jefferson used to have “French Prepared” Potato Slice fries on a consistent basis in his banquets. 

However, there is a group of people historians recall similar potato slice fries being sold in the streets of Paris. Similar to the Belgian villagers, French blue collar workers also depended on potatoes. Historians assume that french fries was a famous item.


As we mentioned, the French fries became an instant hit among the U.S soldiers. So much so, that they learned the preparation styles and brought it to U.S shores. Thus, French fries became a stable item on dinner plates all over the U.S . As with the origins of pizza, French fries also became one of the prime fast food items in American fast food places. That is how “Where did French fries originate?” became such a confusing topic.

Any food item that becomes popular in America, it also becomes a popular one all over the world. That is also true for french fries. From street vendors to world famous franchises, now french fries are a must-have item. McDonald’s in particular has been a great promoter of french fries across the world. 

While its origin might be disputed, what isn’t a dispute is the popularity of French fries. You can order your favorite French fries from Hungrynaki!

Keto Diet: What is it and should you go for it?

With the world slowly growing worried about their food habits, there are more and more diets that are popping up here and there.

But among all these schools of thought, one of the popular ones is the Keto Diet. Other than paleo, atkins, vegan; Keto is a quality diet plan people can follow. Let’s break down some of the finer points of the Keto diet and let’s see if it is for you.

Side Effects & Negatives

A keto diet plan can have great benefits. But only if the overall food balance is maintained. If you consume proteins more than fats, then it becomes tough to achieve ketosis. Fat burning won’t be possible. Apart from that, there is the fact that eliminating carbs can be an extremely tough decision for some. Especially for people in Bangladesh who depend on rice and bread. The discipline needed to follow a ketogenic diet may be quite tough. If you cannot followit properly then it may not be able to achieve the intended results.

Bhuna Khichuri Recipe for a Rainy Day

On these wet days, when winds are blowing and rain is pouring down every fortnight or so; the stomach yearns for comfort food. No food item invokes more craving in a true Bangali like a plate of simmering bhuna khichuri. Known to people as hodgepodge in the western community, Khichuri is one of the best rice dishes in South East Asian Countries. A Well-made biryani maybe a favorite but khichuri is a close second. It’s an extremely popular dish and also a great mix with eggs, dried fish (shutki), meat curries, and a host of other items. When we were little, we used to badger our mothers for bhuna khichuri with meat curry or fried meat items. Heck, we do it even now! But today, we’ll show you how you can whip up your own dish of Bhuna khichuri yourself with a simple yet tasty Bhuna Khichuri Recipe. 

Bhuna Khichuri Recipe: Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Scented Rice of any kind (pulao/basmati)
  • Half a cup of mung dal 
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 pieces of whole dry red chillies
  • 1 or 2 sticks of Cinnamon
  • 3 cardamoms
  • 4 pieces of Cloves
  • 3 tablespoon of ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon of jeera powder
  • Chopped onions – 1 cup
  • 2 pieces of  Green chilly
  • A tablespoon of turmeric powder
  • Salt and Sugar according to your taste
  • Ghee according to taste
  • Beresta (Fried Onions) for Garnish 


First wash the rice and dal properly in a container. Make sure you drain any water after washing. Heat the Ghee in a traditional pan. Add the bay leaf, dried red chilli, ginger paste, cinnamon sticks, cardamom one after the other. Let the pan simmer for a bit. After this add the rice and dal to the pan, fry everything together for 5 minutes. On the side, add sliced onions and keep frying until they change golden in color. Turn down to the medium heat, and add water. Close the lid and let the mix cook. The rice and dal will absorb the water and turn soft. Once its texture is like that add jeera powder. You can add in cashew, almonds, and raisins if you want your khichuri to be fancy. Sprinkle some beresta and pour ghee and serve with the curry or fried egg of your choice.
