This dish takes inspiration from the simple knachkola diye bori’r jhol and is an absolute Bengalee traditional favourite, celebrating minimal ingredients. Our mung daal bori adds its characteristic nutty crunch to the braised-to-softness knachkola (plantain).


about our bori

A common ingredient in Bengalee pantries, bori, made from a variety of daals (pulses), is a versatile addition to any dish. Their making involves a traditional technique of beating the wet-ground pulses to a specific consistency, shaping and dropping them to be sun-dried. Once dried completely, these are ready to be fried or stored for later use.
