Kumro Patay Bora / Rongalau Pator Bor (Pumpkin Leaves Fritters)



Kumro patay bora is a Bengali style pumpkin leaves fritters stuffed with spicy potato stuffing and wrapped in tender pumpkin leaves. Dipped into batter and fried into crispy golden brown from outside and soft juicy inside.

It's raining today and I decided to make rongalau pator bor. So I asked my husband to pluck some tender pumpkin leaves from our kitchen garden. Immediately I  prepared the fritters together with a mixed vegetables sabji and served in dinner with rice.  And believe me the pumpkin leaves fritters were really yummy. I made a quick video of the whole process. Click the video to see how I made the fritters.
