Bhapa Chingri / Steamed prawns in curry and Gobhi -matar sabji / Caulifloer -peas stir fry will follow in a separate post.

For Lau diye bhaja Moog dal follow the recipe here, replace raw papaya with lau. Lau means bottle gourd.

Here’s what I did………….

INGREDIENTS

Dhone pata r bora / Fresh coriander fritters

1 bunch – fresh coriander (100 gms)

3 tbsp – chickpea flour / besan

1 nos – finely chopped green chili

pinch of carom seeds / ajwain

water as required

salt to taste

oil to deep / shallow fry

METHOD

Wash the fresh coriander, thoroughly. Roughly chop the leaves and stalks, all together.

In a bowl, mix chopped coriander, green chili, carom seeds. Add water to make a thick batter, more like a paste. Season with salt.

Heat oil and drop this batter one spoonful at a time. Fry till golden brown on a medium flame.

Serve hot.

Note : * This makes a good snack, as well.

Taking this over to Angie’s Fiesta Friday Anniversary party, with two beautiful co-hosts Hilda and Julianna.
