Flattened Rice

Flattened Rice

I interviewed my mom about my grandma. After speaking to her, I decided my object is going to be flattened rice. My grandma immigrated in 2000 to America from Bangladesh for a better life. She took flattened rice(MU-RE which means “flattened rice” in Bangla) on the plane to the US. She used flatten rice to put on many different foods and sometimes ate it by itself. Not only did my grandma  eat this food, but my moms siblings also ate it too.

My grandma brought flattened rice on the plane because she has diabetes and flattened rice was not too detrimental to her health, so flattened rice was a great choice for her. I chose the object because it reminds me of my grandma who right now is living in Bangladesh. The object also reminds me of my culture and where I am from. We eat this flattened rice on a daily basis but mostly during Ramadan.
My grandma eventually immigrated to America in the year 2000 and is now currently living a good life with her children. I know that she eats this on a daily basis. I plan on passing down this food to my future children. I am proud to have this food that represents my family's culture.
