New Age Content Creation
Writing this particular paragraph was a difficult decision for me, as it has nothing to do with SEO or AI-generated suggestions related to the recipe of Mourola Mach or Bengali cuisine. Today, creating content for a food blog has become a repetitive process, involving the creation of video content, taking pictures, following a particular format to frame the recipe, and posting the video through different mediums like YouTube, Instagram, and Pinterest. In this whole process, I feel that there is no space for expressing the emotional connection that food brings to people.
Food is not just a source of nourishment, but also a way to bring people together. Food has the power to evoke memories, create conversations, and evoke a sense of nostalgia. It can also act as a bridge between two cultures, helping people to understand each other better. For example, I have heard people talk about how they were able to connect with their roots by introducing their families to a particular cuisine. And yet, in the current process of creating food content, there is no space to discuss these emotional connections.
I strongly believe that we should acknowledge the emotional connection that food brings and create content that reflects the same. It is important for us to recognize the power of food and its ability to bring people together and evoke strong emotions. This is the only way we can truly bring out the beauty of food and its culture.
Do you miss Old-school Recipes?
I guess I am old-school but I somehow miss the comfort the recipe creation used to bring. The sheer delight of following a recipe that has been passed down through generations, the stories that were so close to heart, and the satisfaction of creating a dish from scratch, all pale in comparison to the glitz and glamour of Reels. Even for recipe writing we now have a set format ideal for getting the ranking better and that format is like a form, you just need to fill in the places to come up with a recipe.
Does writing about food really have to be like that? Is there no room for a personal touch, the joy of experimentation, or the thrill of discovering a new flavor combination? Is it all just about getting those rankings better? I don't know, but what I do know is that I miss the comfort of the old-fashioned recipe writing, that I used to enjoy so much.
I am leaving this question to you, but as far as I am concerned, I miss the connection that old-school recipe writing used to bring. Instead of simply listing the ingredients and instructions, these recipes provided personal titbits and a little history. This approach often went against the conventional ranking of recipes, but it was far more satisfying. It made the recipes come alive and provided a unique insight into the culture and history of the dish.
Mourola Maacher Tel Chorchori Kacha Aam Diye
Enough about my quandaries regarding my dilemmas about changing scenarios in recipe writing. I think. It's time for the recipe. Last Sunday, Mehebub returned from the market carrying around 250g of Mourola mach. The fish was not cleaned and dressed. It can be tricky to find a fishmonger who will clean fish on Sundays, but the morola maach looked so fresh that I asked Maa to clean the fish so I could record the process with my camera. After cleaning it, I decided to make a tangy mishmash with fresh Morola Maach and green Mango, and I snapped a few pictures of that too. Hence, the recipe!
A Bengali delicacy cooked with raw mangoes and fish Mourola Maacher Tel Chorchori Kacha Aam Diye is a perfect dish for a summer meal. The combination of the tartness of the mangoes and the savory flavors of the fish creates a unique and delicious flavor profile. To make this fish mishmash, I use Onion, Garlic, Green Chili, and Mustard Paste as the base of the dish. I also add basic spices such as Turmeric Powder, Red Chili Powder, Salt, and Sugar to enhance the flavor. Mustard Oil adds a nice pungency to the dish, while Cilantro adds an earthiness that really rounds out the flavors.
The result is a fresh, light, and delicious fish curry-like mishmash that pairs well with a variety of side dishes. Serve this curry with steamed rice for a complete Bengali meal that is sure to please.

Top tip - How to clean Mourola Maach at home
Use fresh Mourola Mach to make this delicacy. Mourola is a small fish that requires special treatment when being prepared for cooking. It is not possible to cut and clean the fish as you would with a larger variety, as the size of this particular fish makes it impractical to do so. Instead, it is necessary to clean and discard the interiors in order to avoid any unpleasant bitter taste. This can be done by carefully removing the head, guts, and other organs before cooking.
Once these have been removed, the fish can be cooked in a variety of ways, such as baking, grilling, or even smoking. While it may take a bit more effort and time, the end result will be a delicious and flavorful dish.
