Bengali Style Fish Curry

This bengali style fish curry has been recommended by one of my friend to be posted.

This curry need no time to cook and is extremely yummilicious.

And it has got minimum ingredients that you can always find in your home.

I have been brought up eating this curry since I can remember……passed on by my grand mom and may be her grandma.

So without further much ado here goes the recipe.


  • Fish (rohu i prefer but you can use any fish of your choice)
  • Mustard oil to fry-4 tbspn
  • Cumin powder -1 tbsp
  • Coriander powder-1 tbsp
  • Tumeric powder-1 teaspn
  • Chopped tomato-1
  • Green chillies – 2
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped coriander to garnish
  • Chopped coriander


First clean the fish which we in Australia do get it cleaned , if not just descale it.

Marinate fish with turmeric and salt.

Pour oil in hot pan and let the mustard oil be really heat….how would you know it???? smoke will come out of it. We do it to take all the bitterness out of the mustard oil.

Lower the heat and let the oil cool down little bit.

Now fry the fish the way you like it ….I like mine little bit on crisp side.

Take out the fish put it aside and in meanwhile in a bowl of water mix cumin powder, coriander powder,chilies and chopped tomatoes.

Pour the mixture in the oil and then add turmeric and salt to taste and shimmer for 2 mins or until you can see the oil coming up.

Add the fish slowly and half glass of water and cook for more 2 mins and take it off the heat.

You can add a pinch of garam masala at the end and at last chopped coriander.

Serve it hot with plain rice….heaven.
