Tangra Macher Jhol
Nowadays I am exploring the fish market a lot given Mehebub is presently not in India and we are residing in Kolkata! This situation has given me a chance to explore the nearby market in Garia. This market is available with various fresh fishes and especially small fishes from freshwater and Tangra Mach a.k.a cat Fish is one of those. Last week while hopping the market while returning from the office I saw fresh Tangra fish in abundance and most of those are full of egg (fish roe)! I then grabbed 500g of Tangra Mach and returned home happily and ended up making the Tangra Macher Aloo Begun o Bori diye Jhol.
Tyangra Macher Tel Jhol with Bori, Begun, and Aloo and why?
Initially, I was thinking to prepare Tangra Macher Jhal with a Mustard paste which my Mom and Mamoni used to make in my ancestral house. However, while checking my fridge for veggies to make another side dish I found an Eggplant. there was a change in plan from a hard-core Ghoti dish to the typical Bangal delicacy Tangra Mach er Aloo Begun o Bori diye Jhol.

I used to have this runny curry with Tangra fish at my Cousin’s place. Bardibhai’s MIL was a great cook and she was originally a native of Bangladesh. I still remember that great runny Tangra fish curry prepared by her with veggies. They did not use Onion garlic in their cooking but I love the flavor of Onion and garlic in my Tangra Mach er Aloo Begun o Bori diye Jhol.
