Rohu Fish with green papaya / pepe diye rui macher jhol
6/7 Rohu Fish Pieces
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1 tbl spoon ( heaped ) onion paste
3/4 th tea spoon turmeric powder
1 and half tea spoon Chili powder or according to your taste
1/4 th tea spoon coriander powder
Half of a medium sized papaya , cut into thick cubes
Salt to taste
5/6 whole green chilies
Other ingredients :
Little turmeric, salt and chili powder to fry the fish .
1. Rub little turmeric , chili powder and salt on the pieces of fish and keep it aside for half and hour . Then shallow fry them . Take them out from the oil .
2. In the same oil , add the chopped onion . Fry until light brown . Add the onion paste and little water . Add the chili, turmeric powder and salt and cook well adding water little by little . Now add the papaya and cook well . Green papayas take bit longer time to get well done , so what I do , I always steam them for 10-15 minutes or until half done . Then I add the papya to the masala and cook . Now add the fish and enough water .
3. Cook them until comes the desired consistency . Add the whole green chilies and cook on low flame for another 5/ 7 minutes with lid on . At the end add the chopped cilantro and serve hot with plain rice . 🙂
1. As I have mentioned earlier , to save some time , steam the papaya ( not boil ) for 10/15 minutes . Believe me , it saves time without compromising the taste and nutrition .
