Jhinge Peyaj Posto(Ridge gourd and onion in poppy seed paste)

In my early days I used to hate- Jhinge (Ridge Gourd).Being a Bong my love for Posto(poppy seed)has always been in the top of the list.I have even met only hundreds of people who hate Jhinge(Ridge Gourd).
I must tell you the combination of poppy seed paste,fried onion,ridge gourd taste very good.Cooking some of the selected vegetable with poppy seed paste - is a unique combination and quite an obsession to most of the Bengali's.

1.Poppy seed paste-1 cup

Soak the poppy seeds in warm water for 15-20 mins.Strain it and blend it with adding 2 green chillies to make a smooth paste.

2.Ridge Gourd(Jhinge)- 2 ,peeled and diced


4.Green chillies-3

4.Mustard oil- 4-5 tbsp



1.Heat oil in a pan and fry the onions till golden brown.

2.Add the diced ridge gourd(Jhinge) and add salt to it.

Add the salt cautiously and the Ridge Gourd contains water.

3.Cook till the Ridge Gourd softens and cooked.

4.Add the poppy seed paste, 1 sliced green chili and mix well.Check the salt seasoning.

5.Cook till the water dries out.

6.Serve hot with plain rice.
