Posto - Narkel - Dhonepata Ar Tiler Bora / Poppy seeds - Coconut - Coriander leaves and Sesame seed Fritters....

Narkle Postor Bora is a delicacy from Bengal. It is a side dish served with hot dal and rice. My Ma use to prepare this dish adding coriander leaves and sesame seeds into it mostly on a vegetarian day and I use to enjoy it with Korair (Urid) Dal and Aloo Posto. Usually the poppy seeds are ground into a paste and then mixed with the other ingredients. Today I have ground the poppy seeds into a powder and mixed it with the other ingredients. 

Ingredients 
1/2 cup Poppy seeds powdered 
1/3 cup desiccated Coconut or fresh grated Coconut 
2 tbsp White Sesame seeds
3 tbsp Rice flour 
Salt to taste 
2 Green Chillies chopped 
1/3 cup Coriander Leaves chopped 
Oil for shallow frying 

Method
Take a mixing bowl and add all the above ingredients except oil. Add just enough water to make a dough. Divide the dough into lime size equal portion. Take a portion and make a ball and flatten it. Repeated the process for other portions too. Heat oil in a fry pan. Place the fritters in the pan and fry it on medium low heat till brown on both the sides. Serve it hot with rice and dal.
