Pat shaker Bora / Jute Leaf Fritter / পাট শাকের বড়া

pat shaker bora 1


Honestly speaking I was not very fond of Jute Leaf(Pat shak) before. But when I first found it in Asian vege shop in Australia, I became very excited about it. Then I did some research about Jute leaf specially to make Sukno Pat shak/ Dry Jute Leaf which is traditional North Bengal Food and got to know about its popularity. Many people even compare Jute leaf as “Food of Heaven”. Pat shaker Bora / Jute Leaf Fritter is not as popular as Jute leaf lentil (Pat Shaker Dal) and Jute leaf fry (pat shak bhaja), but  this is my most favourite preparation of Jute leaf. Enjoy it as a snack or with rice and dal, it tastes awesome. As usual I try to use ingredients as less possible, but you want, you can skip onion and instead of red lentil you can use chick peas flour(besan). Enjoy

With love,

  • 1 cup Pat Shak / Tender Jute Leaf
  • ½ cup Red lentil
  • ½ cup onion (sliced)
  • Salt
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric powder
  • 3-4 Green Chilli (chopped)( as per taste)
  • Oil for deep frying

How  To Make:

  1. Wash and soak red lentil for hour and drain the water. Coarsely grind it.
  2. For jute leaves wash it, drain the water (I leave it in a strainer for couple of hour to get rid of any excess water) and chop coarsely.
  3. Mix all ingredients together and heat oil in a frying pan. Take a dollop of the mixture and add to the pan. On medium heat fry on both sides till golden brown.
  4. Enjoy Pat shaker Bora / Jute Leaf Fritter as a snack or with rice dal.
