Ilish macher dimer bhora ( mashed hilsha roe)</
Today's post (ilish macher dim bhorta) is dedicated to Amma , my Mom-in-law , who sometimes calls me " Maiji" !!!!! She hardly addresses anyone "maiji", not even to her daughters, as it being exclusively fixed for her Mom, my grand mother-in-law !!!! alhamdulillah, really feel blessed for the love she always shows to me !!!!! I came to learn "macher dim er bhorta" from her !!! Before that never thought fish roe can be made bhorta too !!!!!!To me she makes the best "macher dim er bhorta" ( mashed fish roe) ever !!!!!!!! She used to coat the eggs with little salt and oil and then fry them on a skillet with lid on , on low flame until tender ! no extra oil while frying , no spices ! and then she used to make bhorta in the regular procees .. but the taste was always "out of the world" !!!! Since we get only frozen fish and roe , my version is slightly diff than her !! obviously doesn't taste as great as her's , but taste wise it's still very good !!!!!!!
Hilsha roe ( or any fish roe)
Chopped green chilies
1. Coat the fish roe with little turmeric, red chili powder and salt .Fry them well .
2. Mash chopped onion, green chili and cilantro well with the help of your fingers . add salt and mustard oil . Now mash the fish roe too and mix well with that.
Serve with rice !!!!!!!!!!
