Kumror Chhokka is a delectable Bengali subzi made with potatoes and pumpkin, teamed up with snake gourd and kabuli chana.
A tempering of panch phoron and other spice powders boost the flavour and aroma of these veggies, giving you a tasty subzi that goes well with rotis as well as rice.
The best part is that the Kumror Chhokka is also very easy to make, so you can choose to make it on any regular day. Try other Bengali recipes like Musur Dal and Papaya Tarkari .
