Macher Dimer Bora r Jhal / Fish Roe Dumplings Curry
Fish roe dumplings curry is one of the famous bengali dish. It is known as macher dimer bora r jhal. Fish roe is especially available during rainy season. Fotunately, this week I got fish roe in the market and my tasting buds were craving for this dish, so without wasting time I started preparing the dish!
Fish eggs – 150 gm (I used Rohu eggs)
Onion – finely chopped, 1 tablespoon
Ginger paste – 2 teaspoon
Red chili powder – 1 tablespoon
Kitchen King Powder – 1 table spoon
Gram Flour (Besan) – 3 teaspoon
Green chili – finely chopped
Coriander powder – 1 tablespoon
Potato – one medium size, sliced & blanched
Tomato – 1/2 cup, sliced
Wash the fish roe under running water and drain the water & keep it in a bowl. Now add chopped onion, turmeric powder, green chili, salt, kitchen king masala and gram flour. Make a homogeneous mixture using a spoon or hand. Now heat oil in a pan and put spoonful of mixture one by one and fry both the sides of them. When they are golden brown in color, take out from oil and serve hot as a starter dish or snacks. Keep few dumplings aside to make another dish.
Now put oil in a pan and start frying remaining onions. Add ginger paste, turmeric powder, salt, red chili powder, coriander powder, green chili and sliced tomato.Cook well. Add potatoes and close the vessel with a lid and wait for 5 minutes. Now pour little water after opening the lid. Put the remaining dumplings in to curry and boil for some time & serve it with plain rice.
