Postor Bora | Bengali Poppy Seed Fritters


Postor Bora or Poppy Seed Fritter is a famous Bengali munchie (fritter) prepared with the paste of Poppyseed. We serve it as part of our regular meal along with Rice and Dal.


Units Scale
  • 100g Posto Dana/ Poppyseed
  • 1 Tbsp. Rice Flour
  • 3-4 Green Chilli
  • 1/2 Tsp. or Salt: to taste
  • 5 Tbsp. Mustard Oil: 5 ( for frying)


  1. Wash and soak Poppy seed in water for around 30 minutes. This will help to make a smooth paste, especially in Mixer Grinder.
  2. Take the Soaked Poppy seed along with Green Chillies and make a smooth paste of it. You can use a shil-batta to make the paste as well.
  3. Don't add extra water while making the paste. It has to be thick at the end.
  4. Add salt and Rice flour to the Poppyseed past and mix using a spoon.
  5. Heat Mustard Oil in a Pan and using either hand or a spoon scoop some of the paste and give it a flattened dish shape. Refer to the picture for exact shape.
  6. Place scooped Poppy seed paste over hot oil and following the same process make a few more for frying.
  7. Fry in low flame until the Postor Bora turns golden brown and crispy from one side.
  8. Flip the fritter and fry from the other side as well.
  9. Take the Poppy seed Fritters out and using a kitchen towel or Tissue paper soak extra oil from the Postor Bora.
  10. Serve it with Rice and your choice or lentil side.
