KUMRO FULER BORA / PUMPKIN FLOWER FRITTERS

 
Pumpkin blossoms fritters or Kumro fuler bora is one of the popular and traditional fritters among Bengalis. Nowadays, the new generation are going to forget the essence of this delicious yummy starters. I have pumpkin tree in our garden and now it is flowering. Looks really very attractive.

A crispy and yummy snack, amazing taste in every bite. Just try it, trust me, you can't forget its toothsome taste. Enjoy this simple fritters with any kind of sauce and chutney!
  
INGREDIENTS:
3 Pumpkin Flowers
3 tbsps Chickpea Flour
3 tbsps Rice Flour
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp Red Chilli powder
1/4 tsp Nigella seeds (kalonji)
1/4 tsp Poppy seeds
1/4 tsp Roasted Cumin powder
Salt to taste
Vegetable Oil for frying

METHOD:
Wash pumpkin flowers nicely.

Cut each pumpkin flower vertically to make two equal part.

Combine chickpea flour, rice flour, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, nigella seeds, poppy seeds, roasted cumin powder and salt in a bowl. Mix nicely and add little water to make a thick batter. Set it aside.

Heat oil in a wok. Dip the flower into the batter and coat it nicely. Add two three pieces in the hot oil at a time.

Fry till each side turns golden brown. Remove from oil by using a slotted spoon. Drain on a kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil from it.

Serve hot as a side dish with dal-rice or starter or just as evening snack accompaning with a cup of tea.
