FISH EGG BHURJI | HOW TO COOK BENGALI STYLE SCRAMBLED FISH EGG RECIPE

Fish are must in Bengali thali. From simple fry to spicy curry, a fish recipe makes one hearty meal. Fish recipes have their own prominence in Bengali cuisine followed by other sea food like prawns or crabs. But this fish Roe recipe is very underrated. We mostly fry them and pair them with Dal rice combo. Fish eggs are very delicious in taste. You can cook them simply as fritters, it will taste awesome. If the fritters are cooked in tomato onion gravy, a delicious curry recipe gets ready. No matter how you cook, it tastes wonderful. But it’s cleaning process is bit clumsy. Since it’s texture is grainy, you have to be careful with the cleaning.

In our house, my mother wash them with hot water. Dip the lump in hot water, drain out the water, remove the veins and membranes. Repeat this process till the lump becomes clean. Then it’s ready for cooking.
