Bacha fish curry, part I

leave a comment »

Freshwater catfish, about 10-12 cm in size like a small trout, soft fleshed, with flavor that of fish eggs.

  • Scientific Name: Eutropiichthys vacha
  • Common Name: Batchwa vacha
  • Bangla Name: Bacha
  • More fish info here, declining population since it is a tasty little fish

To clean, remove gills and guts and trim the fins. Rinse.

To cook, marinate 2 cleaned fish with 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and 1/4 tsp salt for up to 1/2 hr at room temperature or overnight in fridge. Bring 2 tbsp mustard oil to smoking point in a wok, add fish and lightly fry for a few minutes on each side. Add 1/2 tsp onion seeds, 1 thai chili and add 1 cup hot water. Add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and salt to taste and cook for 5 more minutes. Add 1 tbs chopped coriander leaves and 1/2 tsp lime juice. Serve hot with plain rice.
