Here is an easy recipe to make Bengali-style fish fry
Bengali cuisine predominantly consists of fish dishes. Fried, steamed or grilled, fish serves as a staple food in almost all Bengali kitchens. Bengalis' affliction with their food is well-known all over the country. Their peculiar way of cooking the meals and their unique flavouring, make Bengali foods highly popular in the rest of the country. We all like eating fish but not quite like the way Bengalis do. It is almost a ritual for Bengalis to partake in fish treats during special occasions and even religious festivities. Fish fry is probably the most common dish cooked in Bengal. Although the dish is relished in other cities as well, the Bengali-style fish fry adds another dimension to eating the sea food.
If you love to eat fish, you must try Bengali-style fish fry. And, you can do it at your own home by cooking the dish with the help of the easy recipe that we are giving you straight from the kitchen of food vlogger Ananya Banerjee. She shared the recipe video on her YouTube channel 'Chef Ananya Banerjee'.
Traditionally, bhetki fish is used to make Bengali-style fish fry but this recipe uses Basa fillet, which is commonly available everywhere in India. The fish fillet is marinated in a medley of flavourful spices before crumb-frying it. Crumbing is the process of coating the food with all-purpose flour (maida), eggs and bread crumbs. This helps in giving a crunchy and crispy exterior to any food that is later fried. Pair this fish fry with kasundi or Bengali-style mustard sauce that will give you the real experience of eating authentic fish food.
