As you know, it is not my style. Usually I don’t cook without onion. After that I was inspired to see Tagor’s favourite list and just loved the result. If someone is not comfortable to cook without onion, then just add onion. But try my recipe; I know that you will love it.

  1. What if I can’t find white poppy seed to make Aloo Phlukopir Dalna, any substitute which I can use ?

    • Poppy seeds is kinda must but I will say that you can use almond meal instead of poppy seeds. Don’t tell anyone that I tell that. People can sue me for that.
