  Got this recipe from a Bengali friend of mine. I personally think you get the most awesome fish recipes from Bengal, after all its their staple food. Bongs and fish go hand in hand!!!! I have made some changes to the original recipe but all in all the results were good. My hubby being a true blue maharashtrian loves spicy food…..garam masala et al..



  1. Gently steam the fish in very little water till its cooked, This will take not more than 7 to 8 mins. Cool and mash it, remove bones if any. Chop the onion, garlic finely.
  2. In a bowl take the mashed fish, add the coriander leaves, chopped onions, garlic, egg, lemon juice, garam masala, chilli powder, haldi powder, dhania powder, besan, cornflour and the salt and combine them together till they are fully incorporated.
  3. Now make oblonged shaped shaped cutlets. Roll the cutlets in the breadcrumbs and shallow fry in hot oil on low heat till crisp. Drain on a kitchen towel and serve hot with coconut dhania chutney.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
