Bengali Cuisine is known for its tasty food. One of them is Doi Maach (Rohu Fish with Curd). This recipe is made with Rohu (fresh water fish) using yogurt / curd in the curry. Rohu fish called as Rui Maach in Bengali is large in size and are considered tastier among other fresh water fishes.

Doi Maach Recipe:

Doi Maach Jhor (Curry):

  • Take another pan and add 1 tablespoon oil in it. You can use the same oil which was used for frying fish (mach) if left.
  • Add jeera( cumin seeds) in the oil.
  • Add 4 cloves and 4 cardamon in the oil.
  • Break 2 red dry chillies and add to it.
  • Add 3-4 bay leaf.
  • Add 1cup roughly grinded onion paste and stir for 2 mins.
  • Now add 5-6 cashews paste and stir again.
  • Put chopped tomatoes, salt and pinch of sugar to it and cook for 2 mins.
  • Now add dhaniya powder, mirchi powder, little 1/2 teaspoon garam masala to it and stir again.
  • Add water as per how much thickness you want for your gravy. I like this gravy with rice so 2 1\2 glass water goes in it as little water will burn also.
  • Now its time to add fish (maach) to the curry (jhor) and keep the flame on low.
  • As soon as the water starts boiling, add one cup curd (doi) to the curry and let it cook for more 5-10 minutes on low flame.
