Maple seed fritters or Bokfuler Bora is one of the traditional Bengali cuisine . I love the unique essence of maple seed. I got those seeds from the farmer’s market and they were fresh and gorgeous.

This crispy and delicious fritters are worth to try for our new generation who nearly forget this toothsome taste. You can try this as starter with dalrice or evening snack accompanying with cup of tea.

During my childhood my grandma made this bora, my sisters and I used to drool over them for take a delicious bite. There was another fritters of kumrofuler(pumpkin blossom) bora that always take our attention .You can make this pumpkin blossom in the same way of bokfuler bora.
