Macher Jhol

An amazing seafood dish to finish the 12th recipe! A year of some amazing favourites. Here “Macher meaning fish and “Jhol” meaning stew. Traditionally a spicy affair and hailing from the region of West Bengal. Speak to anyone but one thing is for sure, the people of Bengal LOVE their fish! This is my adaptation of a fantastic classic. Almost always served with rice. I’ve brought to the table a bread that my mum made often “BHAKRI” an unleavened bread which goes perfectly with the fish. Finish with a zingy courgette and spring onion thoran and a fragrant cardamom and clove rice.
