When I think about Bengal and myself, I feel proud. Because I am in a place where I can eat the most tastiest fish on earth so frequently, that no one in other place can. That’s true, as I can still remember those days of Hyderabad where I eat bhetki fish or hilsha fish may be 3-4 times in 3 year. But now I can eat whenever I want. Just sharing one thought I am feeling while writing.

I am going to post another bhetki fish recipe, which is really tempting and came from my experiments. You can also check other bhetki fish recipes I have posted earlier here.
