How to make Shol Macher Jhaal/Shol Fish Curry

  1. Rub salt and one teaspoon of turmeric powder on the freshly washed pieces of Shol. Heat ¾ cup oil in a kadai/deep frying pan and shallow fry the fish pieces on medium flame until golden. Keep aside. Now fry the freshly washed pieces of potatoes, let them turn golden brown, remove and keep aside.
  2. There should be 4-5 tbsp oil in the kadai for making the curry, if not add some more at this stage. Temper with Nigella seeds, once it splutters add the onion paste and sauté until light brown in color, now add the garlic paste, mix and stir for few seconds. Add chopped tomatoes, green chilies, ginger paste, salt, cumin powder, kashmiri mirch powder and ½ tsp of turmeric powder. Mix and sauté this on medium flame until the masala starts leaving oil. Now add 2 cup of water. Mix and give this a quick boil on high flame. Add the fish pieces and potatoes into this. Mix well, cover and cook on medium flame until the potatoes are done. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Mix and remove from heat.
