Posto Bhat or raw poppy seed paste mixed with cooked rice, is a very tasty dish of bengali cuisine. Love to eat occasionally at the beginning of a weekend lunch or just whenever we feel for it and will satisfy your appetite to feel sleepy very soon. The aroma of fresh green chilly and mustard oil with poppy seed paste is extremely delicious. Make it more spicy to bring out the authentic recipe taste.
