Bengali FIsh

Bengali Fish, is a fish recipe i learnt from my aunt. She is Bengali and for her its a daily thing to make. Would like to dedicate this to her as i have learnt from her. Its very simple and flavorful dish. This is best served with plain rice.


1lb Big Chunks of Fish
1 Sliced Onion
2-3 Green Chili Chopped
1 tbsp Panch Puran Seeds
(i.e Cumin, Fenugreek, Onion, Fennel, Mustard Seeds)
1 tsp Red Chili Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
2 tbsp Mustard Oil
Cilantro Leaves for garnish


1)  In a pan, heat the oil on medium flame and once hot then add in fish chunks one or two at a time and shallow fry them from both sides.

2) Remove fish pieces from oil,then in the same oil add in Panch Puran. Stir for few seconds, then add in Onions. Stir till that turns glossy, then add in red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and stir well.

3)  Add in a cup of water and fish chunks. Let it boil till water reduces to half or less as preferred  

4) Once done, garnish with Cilantro...Enjoy with Rice.
