How to make Kajali Bhape (Steamed Kajali)

1. Wash the fish (don’t need to do that if you have bought it from Jalongi.com) and add some salt and turmeric powder on it and keep it aside. 

2. Soak the mustard seeds and salt for a few minutes and then grind it along with 2 green chillies to make a paste.

3. In your microwave bowl you need to add the fish, mustard-chilly paste, mustard oil, salt, green chilles, chilly powder (if needed), curry leaves and mix well.

I am a more or less regular customer. Rui and Kayla no longer fall in the category of fish to me as I am tired of Rui jhol and Kayla Malia. It's the lesser known fish indigenous to Bengal that interest me. I would like some traditional yet rustic recipes of "chhoto maach" and would also like to contribute. Thanks.

Very disappointed with my last supply of order . I had ordered for 1kg of large magur amongst others . Large magur tags a higher price . After delivery we found at least 5/6 pieces of fish were given which were less than 75 gms each .

6 June 2020

Refer to my order 351516 . .. entire of the Tangra fish that you have delivered is stale and rotten . The whole house was stinking when we tried to fry some of them . We are expected better quality standards from you .
