We Oriyas love our fish. There are so many different fishes available in market and so many different ways to cook them. Here is one which is very common in our household, rohi (Rohu) macha tarkari.

  9. Turmeric Powder: 2 tsp
  10. Salt : as per taste
  11. Oil: 3tsp
  12. Coriander Leaves: 1 tsp chopped for garnish.


Wash and clean the fish pieces add 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of turmeric powder and mix well and marinade for 10-15 mins.
In a pan heat 1 tsp of oil and fry the fish pieces a couple at a time till cooked through. It should take 10 mins to finish all the fish and potatoes
In a bigger pan heat rest of the oil and add finely chopped onion and a pinch of salt. Cook the onion till they turn transparent. Add red chilli powder and cook till the raw smell if gone. Be careful and don't burn the mix :).
