Phulkopir Datar Bharta (cauliflower Leaf Stalk Bharta)

Hello friends. I'm Ankita. Welcome to my kitchen. Today I'm going to make ''Phulcopir datar bharta''. This is a traditional dish of Tripura. Everyone in our family likes to have it in lunch. My Mami (aunt) taught me how to cook this dish.

Generally people throw away the cauliflower leaf stalks. They think that the destiny of these things is to go there in the dustbin. But they don't know that we can make some delicious items with it. This bharta is one of those yummy dishes.
