SHUTKIR BORA KUMRO PATA’E(Pumpkin Leaves stuffed with Bombay Duck Curry)

I already uploaded the recipe for shutki before. This is a different dish with the same curry. I like eating things which I grow with the help of my husband in my little garden. Self harvested veggies are fresh, cheap and delicious and eating something that you have grown on your own gives you happiness like nothing else does.Pumpkin leaves are very beneficial to our health.Bon Appetite!
