Bengali Rohu Fish


  • Marinate the fish with the salt, turmeric and half of the oil and keep for 15 - 30 minutes. Beat the curd with the sugar and a little water.
  • Add in the onion and chilli paste (if you don't prefer spicy food, you can skip the red chilli totally).
  • Lay out the eish in a baking dish and add the mixture. Add a little water. Put the remaining oil and cover the dish.
  • Cook in the microwave for 6-7 minutes at 100% power. Bring out the dish, turn over the pieces and add in the whole green chillies after slicing them a little lengthwise.
  • Cook for another 15 minutes. Serve hot with rice.
