Dumur Chop or Indian Fig fritters

Dumur is a very popular vegetable that people in West Bengal enjoy eating. Mostly eaten during Summer and Monsoon seasons, I love to eat as Cbop or fritters. Cleaning, peeling the skin and discarding the tiny seeds is a very painstaking job for sure but when prepared for Chop or Dalna (Curry) it’s heavenly in taste and most enjoyed with steamed rice #MadhusKitchen #foodie #thekolkatabuzz
