About Rui Radhuni Jhol (Rohu Fish in Celery Seed Gravy - Bengali Style) Recipe

This is a traditional Bengali Fish Curry, where I have used Rohu Fish. The base of the gravy is that of boiled and blended masoor dal (red lentils) and radhuni paste (celery seeds paste). This particular seed almost resembles ajwain / carom seeds and has a very distinct and an aromatic flavour. It is a very simple and an easy recipe with no compromise on the taste. It is best relished with plain steamed rice and a dash of lime.
