Posto Bora – Poppy seeds fritters

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 !! 😀
