Paturi is a traditional Bengali style of steam cooking in a banana leaf. It is our mother's and grandmother's recipe which is not seen much these days. Generally fish is cooked in this method. I have a soft corner for such traditional fare and so gave my own twist by making a paturi out of Elephant Yam. This simple side dish is best relished with plain steamed rice. Country......UAE.
