Kakroler Pur (stuffed Teasle Gourd)

I know that most of you like me are the lovers of pakoras. Especially in the rainy days people like to have pakoras. "Kakroler pur" is also a type of pakora .It is a very popular Bengali dish. The outside of this pakora is crispy but the inside is spicy and juicy. But in ny opinion Didan's (grandmother's) recipe is the best.
Now let's go inside the kitchen and start cooking.
