Ingredients to make Catla Maacher Rosha (Carp in Tomato Gravy)

  • Catla (Carp or any sweet water fish)- 4 pieces
  • Tomatoes- 2, diced
  • Nigella seeds/Kalonji/Kalo jeera- 1/2 tsp
  • Chopped coriander- a handful
  • Green chilies- 2, slit
  • Mustard oil to deep fry the fish
  • Salt to taste
  • Turmeric- for marinating the fish

How to make Catla Maacher Rosha (Carp in Tomato Gravy)

  1. Clean the fish, pat dry, apply salt and turmeric all over. Keep aside for 10 mins, then heat a deep-bottomed vessel, preferably a kadhai.
  2. Heat mustard oil, enough to fry 4 fish pieces (about 2 tbsp should be enough). Deep fry the fish pieces until they are golden brown and crisp (should take 2 minutes on either side ideally, on a medium high heat).
  3. In the same oil, add the kalonji seeds and let them sputter. Add the slit green chilies and diced tomatoes. Season with salt and turmeric, cover and let the tomatoes soften.
  4. Once the tomatoes are soft, add the fish, a cup of water and the chopped coriander.
  5. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until some of the gravy has reduced and seeped into the fish (makha makha or rassa-type).
  6. Serve with steamed rice.

My Tip:

You may make this with any oil, but the flavour comes from mustard oil. Don't add any spices or it will spoil the simple flavours.
