Doi Maach


4 Pieces of the Rohu fish
( washed, marinated with salt and turmeric and lightly fried )
1 cup of Fresh curd / dahi / yoghurt
1/2  tbsp of Besan / Gram flour
A Pinch of Haldi / Turmeric
2 Green Cardamoms
2 small pieces of Dalchini / Cinnamon
2/3 Whole dry Red Chillies
4 tbsp of Onion paste
1 tsp cooking oil
Salt and sugar to taste


Beat the curd and the besan well and keep aside.
Heat oil in a kadahi ..
Add the cardamom, dalchini and whole red chillies.
Add the onion paste and keep stirring on low heat till the oil leaves sides and
the onions lose their raw smell.
Now add the curd and besan mixture, turmeric and a little water.
Keep the heat on low all the while.
When it starts to boil slowly, add the salt and sugar.
Cook for a while.
When it reaches the desired consistency, add the fried fish pieces.
Let them simmer for some more time.
( Do not cook for a long while after adding the fish ... the pieces will soak up the gravy and
may turn very soft ).
Remove from fire and serve hot over rice.
