Kakrol Pur / Stuffed Teasel Gourd

01 July, 2013

Yesterday I prepared this kakrol pur / stuffed teasel gourd and every one enjoyed it. This is quite an easy preparation, crunchy on the outside and delicious stuffing inside. One of my sisters had come over to my house yesterday and I served her this traditional Bengali starter and it was finished as soon as it was served. So, do try this at home and hope you like it!
