This Bengali delicacy is usually made using prawns or fish. But in this vegetarian and low-calorie version of the Potoler Dolma, the potol is stuffed with Indian Cottage Cheese and dry fruits. The stuffed potol is shallow fried instead of deep frying and is tossed in a tangy and spicy tomato-cashew nut gravy. Potoler Dolma is a wholesome and delicious dish that can be served along with rotis. They can be also served with hot rice.
