I wonder if anyone is fond of fish here!! being a bong I sure am! So just thought to share one simple yet delicious typical bong style fish recipe with you guys, try it if you like fish.
This is a little spicy and oily. I still remember my mom cooking this for me while I used to be down with fever and my taste buds used to be blunt!!!
This fish you might not get everywhere, as far as my knowledge is concerned, its available in INA Market and CR Park Market 1 & 2.
I am sure this fish will be available in other fish markets as well in Delhi.
