About Bhapa Posto Paturi (Steamed Poppy Seeds Paste in Banana Leaf - Bengali Style) Recipe

let me share my version of just a simple and homemade delicacy where I have steamed the poppy seeds paste along with other ingredients, wrapped in a banana leaf. It is just divine and is best relished with plain steamed rice. A drizzle of some extra mustard oil does wonders to this dish.
