About Bandhakopir Paturi (Cabbage cooked in Banana Leaf) Recipe

Paturi is a traditional Bengali recipe where the fish is coated in a mustard paste, wrapped in a banana leaf and steam cooked. This yummy preparation is then relished with plain steamed rice. Well you can always have it with chapatti too. But today I would like to share a vegetarian version of it with cabbage. It is a very simple, easy and an equally delicious dish. It is actually a fuss-free recipe and something new on the dinner table to be enjoyed with your family and friends.
