Pitha home made cakes. Many kinds of pithas are made in Bangladesh. These are not part of the daily menu. They are served on special occasion such as receiving bridegrooms or brides, entertaining guests, and arranging special get together of family members, relatives or friends. Sometimes children or senior members of the family especially ask for pithas and accordingly, mothers or grandmothers make them. Pithas are of many different types. In some cases, neighbouring families jointly make pithas and use the occasion for chatting and having lunch or dinner together.
Most pithas are sweet and a few are hot. Some are made throughout the year but some are seasonal. Pithas of the winter season are the most delicious. Date juice and molasses from date juice and sugarcane are available in the winter. These are important ingredients of pithas that are loved by people of almost all regions of Bangladesh. The pitha season in Bangladesh starts in late autumn, when farmers procure paddy from the field.
In 1991, the Shishu Academy arranged an exhibition of pithas, where 106 categories of pithas were displayed. Pithas are popular all over the country and each area has its unique type of pithas. Sometimes the same pitha has different names in different areas. Some pithas are nationally known and familiar to all.
These are chitoi, patishapta, pakan, bhapa, andosha, kulshi, kata pitha, chit-pitha, labanga pitha, gokul pitha, chutki pitha, muthi pitha, jamdani pitha, hadi pitha, chapdi pitha, nakshi pitha, pata pitha, tejpata pitha, jhuri pitha, phuljhuri pitha and bibikhana pitha.

Regional variation

Pithas vary considerably across the regions of the eastern Indian Subcontinent.
In Bangladesh and West Bengal


Bhapa Pitha.


While some pithas can be made any time of the year in Bengal (Bangladesh and Indian West Bengal), there are special pithas strongly associated with harvest festivals such as Nabanna (Bengali: নবান্ন nôbanno, lit. "new rice" or "new food") and the Poush parbon (the Poush festival). Pithas are often served with sweet syrups such as date tree molasses (Bengali: খেজুরের গুড় khejurer guṛ). Some of the most common pithas found in Bengal (both in Bangladesh and West Bengal) include the following:
  • Chitui/chitoi piṭha
  • তেলের পিঠা Teler piṭha (lit. "oil pitha")
  • ভাপা পিঠা Bhapa piṭha (lit. "steamed pitha") or dhupi
  • Pakan piṭha: fried
  • পুলি পিঠা Puli piṭha: dumplings
  • বেনি পিঠা Beni piṭha (lit. "braid pitha")
  • দুধের পিঠা Dudher piṭha (lit. "milk pitha") or ভিজা পিঠা bhija piṭha (lit. "wet pitha")
  • চন্দ্র পুলি Chôndro puli
  • মুগের পুলি Muger puli
  • দুধ পুলি Dudh puli
  • Paṭi shapta
  • Mug pakon
  • Gokul
  • Chui Pitha or Chutki Pitha (Traditional Old Dhaka Pitha)
