July 20, 2018


1/4 kg Rui (Rohu) fish, premarinated with salt and turmeric

4 tsp Wandering Foodie Shorshe Posto

1/4 count Nigella seeds (Kalonji)

1 tsp Bengali Panch Phoran mix

2-3 count Green chilis (optional) Mustard oil Salt


Mix Wandering Foodie Shorshe Posto in little water to form a smooth paste. Keep aside for 5-10 minutes

Shallow fry fish in mustard oil until brown. Keep aside

Heat 2 tbsp mustard oil until white smoke emerges. Add kalonji (Nigella seeds) or the Bengali panch phoran mix (Panch Phoran is a mixture of equal amounts of kalonji, fenugreek/methi, mustard, cumin and fennel seeds). Let the seeds pop

Add green chilis sliced along the length (optional, since this mix already contains dried green chili powder). Add the Shorshe Posto paste. Fry lightly for a minute. Add desired quantity of water (warm)

Add the fish. Fold well so that all fish pieces are covered fully with Shorshe Posto. Bring to boil. Dress with raw mustard oil for added punch (optional)

Make dough by adding 1/2 cup water Take a small amount of dough and flaten it by hand Sprinkle dry flour on a surface so as not to stick. Then put the flattened dough on the plate and flatten it further by hand uniformly by rotating it. Sprinkle more flour on plate if still sticky. Now the lower side is floury due to the dry flour stuck to it Put the flattened dough on a hot tawa with the floury side up Sprinkle water on the floury side and spread the water till the edge of the dough so that the entire surface is wet Once the lower side is baked, flip the dough using a spatula. Rotate it a few times until the base is crispy Now roast the dough on direct high flame until it rises. Make sure the edges are roasted too Once done, cool the bhakri by keeping it in a vertical position. Do not store hot, else it becomes soggy
