    I love the taste of poppy seeds and I started adding it to some of my meat dishes and gujiya. The credit goes to my neighbor Bhattacharya family. Your fritters look so nice. Thanks for passing along your mom’s recipe.

    Hi Purabi,

    These look fantastic – I’ve never heard of white poppy seeds before… only black ones. I wonder if they would work?! I bought a huge bag of poppy seeds recently so maybe I could use them for this!

    These look really delicious! I like the “crackling” texture, plus I love poppy seeds!

    I bought a large packet of white poppy seeds recently but haven’t opened them because not sure what to use them for. Definitely trying these gorgeous fritters, Purabi. Also, lovely to learn a bit more about Benghali food.

    Bengali cuisine is definitely one of my favourite. I look for excuses to dine at Oh Calcutta! at Bombay. I have never had these fritters before. They look delicious and very inviting! Will give a try soon.

    We do have something similar here but it’s a Chinese snacks. Bet the taste is different. I’ve not tried Bengali food & this certainly looks interesting.

    Indian spices are so good for you and even included in a simple yet scrumptuous looking fritter like this.

    I want to order an Indian cookbook to learn more about the spices, cooking and culture. Is there one that you would recommend Purabi?

    Thank you for sharing.

    Oh Purabi Naha – these sound wonderful! I was sold on them all along but when you said they should be crunchy – you really hooked me! So how many does this recipe make and about how big are they? I definitely want to give the a go. Happy New Year!

    Purabi…what a unique recipe! I love the idea of fritters encrusted with poppy seeds. And I never knew white poppy seeds existed! I always feel like I’m getting a great culinary education when I visit! Great recipe!

    These do look like something I could eat a lot of-yum! Now you have me wondering how I can get my hands on some white poppy seeds. They say that by the time the black poppy seeds get to the US they are no good. That leaves me wondering if I have ever eaten a “good” one. Have a great day.

    These look great. Good mustard oil is a bit hard to find though, what would you suggest as replacement.
