  • Author: Debjani Chatterjee Alam
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 20 min
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Portions 1x

Cooked with the fresh leaves of Jute, Pat Shaker Jhol aka Pat Patar Jhol is a quintessential Bengali clear soup which is vegan as well as gluten-free.


  • 1 bunch of Jute leaves
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 3 cloves of Garlic
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 3 Tbsp. Mustard Oil


  • 3 Dry Red Chillies
  • 1 Tsp. Panch Phoron aka Bengali five Spices


  1. Separate fresh and clean leaves from the bunch of jute leaves.
  2. Around 150g of Jute leaves are needed to make Jute leave soup for 4.
  3. Make a bunch of the separated leaves and chop those roughly. Likewise, cut remaining leaves,
  4. Soak the chopped leaves in water for 5 minutes and after that wash the leaves 2-3 times under running water.
  5. Take 3 cloves of Garlic and remove the skin and roughly chop the garlic.
  6. I use a deep-bottom pan (Dekchi) to boil the greens.
  7. Add 1 Liter of water and bring it to a boil on high flame.
  8. While boiling the water, add 1 Tsp. Salt to it.
  9. Add chopped Jute green as well.
  10. Mix and then boil the greens for 10 minutes on medium flame.
  11. Meanwhile, prepare the tempering.
  12. Heat 3 Tbsp. Mustard Oil in a pan.
  13. Once heated, temper the oil with 1 Tsp. Bengal Panch Phoron.
  14. Add 3 Red Chillies as well to the tempering.
  15. Now add chopped Garlic as well.
  16. Cook for a minute; the mixture will emit an amazing aroma.
  17. Now add the tempering to the Boiling Greens (yes, while you are making the tempering, the boiling will continue).
  18. Keep boiling for 10 more minutes. 
  19. Once done, the greens will be a bit slurry-like.
  20. Add a cup of water to maintain consistency.
  21. The texture should be runny.
  22. While boiling I have added 2 Green Chillies.
  23. Once done, serve Paat Shaker Jhol with steamed rice and enjoy your portion of comfort meal.
  24. This is a very simple Bengali vegan and gluten-free clear soup recipe with limited spices.
  25. Here' presenting my iron and a protein-rich immunity-boosting platter of Gorom Bhat, Pat Patar Jhol, and Pat Patar Bora.
