Skunk vine Fritters / Bhedai lotar bor

Bhedai lota (in Assamese ) or Skunk vine  is a green leafy vegetable found in Assam. The tree is a climber.  It has many medicinal value. But it's leaves give a distinctive odour when crushed.  Yes, it is edible. After cooking it's odour extinguished.

Bor or fritters are fried food generally consists of chickpea flour or any other flour together with different chopped vegetables. In Assamese cuisine bor is generally served as a side dish with rice. But bor or fritters are good to eat with a hot cup of tea during rainy season. Fritters are quick, easy and require minimal effort to make.  Fritters can be prepared with almost any vegetable. Here in this fritters recipe I'm using skunk vine leaves which are very tasty.

  • 2-3 green chillies chopped 
  • 1/4 cup long coriander leaves chopped 
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour 
  • 1 tbsp rice flour 
  • salt to taste 
  • oil to fry


  1. Wash skunk vine leaves under running water.  Make a paste in a grinder by adding some water. 
  2. Chop onions, chillies and long coriander leaves and add them into the skunk vine  paste .
  3.  Add chickpea flour and rice flour. Add salt. Mix well with the help of a spoon .
  4.  Add little water if required to get wet but clumpy mixture. 
  5. In a pan heat oil and drop a full tablespoon of the mixture into the hot oil. Turn half way through when the bottom side becomes crisp. 
  6. Remove from heat when both side becomes  crisp.
