The Bong love -affair with ‘posto’ continues with these delicious fritters. 😉 They can be served as snacks too.
Poppy seeds have manifold health benefits.
Bora her is more like tikkis. Goes well with steaming hot rice and ‘patla mushurir dal’ – watery cooked pink lentils. Very Bengali !! 😉
Here’s presenting Posto bora – Poppy seed fritters from Vegetarian Fusion Platter.
Here’s what I did……….
1/2 cup – poppy seeds
1 tsp – finely chopped onion
1/2 tsp – finely chopped green chili
1 tbsp – wheat flour or APF
1 cup – warm water
mustard oil to shallow fry
salt to taste
Soak poppy seeds in warm water for 30 mins. Strain and grind to a coarse paste with minimal water.
In a bowl, mix together this paste, flour, chopped onion, green chili and salt.
Heat oil in a pan. Shape the mixture in a flat fritter and shallow fry to golden brown.
Serve hot with rice and lentils.
Happy cooking !! 🙂
Cheers !! 😀
