Chal Potol—Nobo borsho special—Potol with Fragrant Rice—Bengali vegetarian recipe

Chal potol (parwal) recipe: Chaal potol is my mother’s specialty that she makes on special occasions in the summer months—specially for Noboborsho or Poila Baishakh lunch, or when we are expecting guests for lunch. Potol (pointed gourd) and aloo is cooked with short-grained, perfumed rice like gobindobhog, and garnished with raisins and cashews for an extra flourish. This Bengali niramish (vegetarian) recipe of potol or parwal aloo’r tarkari is one of our favourite ways to eat potol.

Just Awesome recipe


every summer brings my vegetable enemy/nightmare potol and it shamelessly graces most of the dishes cooked throughout the season. this year as i’m rather trying to adapt myself with it’s inescapable existence, this recipe looks like a good start for me. will try.

Antara Das says:

সত্যি কথা বলতে কি এমনিতে এত বাজে লাগে পটল খেতে কি বলবো!!কিন্তু এই রেসিপি টা লাজওয়াব। আমাদের বাড়িতে চাল পটল বলে আমাদের বন্ধু টন্ধু রা অনেকে বলে পটল গোবিন্দ। রান্না র মেথড টা সেম তোমাদের মতই এন্ড আই জাস্ট লাভ ইট। এই রেসিপি গুলোর জন্যই তোমাদের এত এপ্রিসিয়েট করি।
