West Bengal Cuisine has been influenced by the Muslim rulers, the British rulers and the inhabitation of Jews, Afghans and Chinese. The Dutch and the French had established colonies in West Bengal as well and had a great impact on Bengal’s culinary habits. Although the food habits, tastes, preferences and choice of items vary with different districts, communities and religions, the basic course generally remains the same with rice and fish playing a dominant role. Rice is the staple diet since it is grown widely. It is eaten in various forms as well - puffed, beaten, boiled and fried depending on the meal.
