MOCHAR BORA| BANANA FLOWER FRITTERS| How to Cook fritters with Banana flower

Fritters are my personal favourite. And in our family, my mother is regarded as “Bora specialist”. Oops Bora – I mean fritters.

This recipe is immensely popular in Bengal. Even in our Parar Choper Dokan – shops selling fritters , mochar chop is available everyday.

Now instead of making Chop I made Bora out of it. And my Bora specialist Ma helped me.

Chop and Bora are different. In case of making a Chop you must dip it in batter. But making Bora is easy. Mix everything and make shape out of it and fry.


Banana blossoms -1 bowl

Potatoes (boiled) – 2

Salt to taste

Turmeric powder pinch

Besan – 2-3 spoons

Baking powder – pinch



Prepare Mocha Mocha for cooking.(Check my post on mochar ghonto and see the peeling procedure )

Now take the entire mocha on a plate.

Mash the potatoes and add them.

Add all the spices.

Mix everything and form small shapes from it. You can make ball or can give cutlet shape or kebab shape. Here I have given kebab shape.

Put oil in pan. Fry them off.
