As per my taste Puti Mach is the tastiest small fish in Bengal.It just tastes awsome. Today I am sharing a very favourite recipe of Babu (my father). Not many people like small fishes, but who like; can just die for them. I don’t know how many people know this recipe. It is Puti mach & ladies finger curry.
Preparation Time: 20 Min
200gm Big size Puti Mach
250gm Ladies Finger cut into 1 inch size (Cut 1 Ladies Finger into 3 pieces)
2 Onions finely Chopped
Dhania patta(Coriander leaves) finely Chopped
2-3 green chili finely chopped
1/2 tbsp Jeera powder
1/2 tbsp Dhania powder
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Marinate them with Turmeric powder and salt. Heat mustard oil in a pan. And then add the fishes into the pan.Fry them properly. We need to fry them well, not half fried.
Now take them out of the pan and keep the fried fish aside. If required need to add little more oil to the pan & add the chopped onions,salt & turmeric powder and fry for 2 min. Now add the Ladies Finger pieces & fry them well. Add the green chillies, jeera, dhania & pinch of Kashmiri Mirch Powder (The Kashmiri Mirch Powder adds to the flavor & the color of the curry also comes out nice) and stir for 1-2 min.
Then add little water.It ll be a dry recpie. Add the fish and chopped coriander leaves.Now cover the pan and cook for next 5 min in low heat. Serve with hot rice.
