Thankuni Patar Bora / Centella Fritter

Thankuni patar Bora


Though you can make with any leafy vegetables, I am making centella / thankuni pata. Centella is very authentic Bangladeshi leafy vegetable. I want to introduce or remind it. Centella is a medical herb. It is a mild adaptogen, mildly antibacterial and can act as a cerebral tonic and useful in the treatment of anxiety.

Thankuni Patar Bora / Centella Fritter is very simple snack. Hope you guys will love this simplicity of this recipe.


• 1/3 cup red lentil

• 1 cup chopped centella leaves(thankuni pata)

• 1 onion sliced

• 3-4 green chillies chopped

• ½ teaspoon salt

• ¼ teaspoon turmeric(optional)

• 2 tablespoons flour

• Oil for deep fry
