Sorse Rui

Ingredients to make Sorse Rui

  • Rohu fish- 2 large pieces (300 gram)

How to make Sorse Rui

  1. Marinate the fish with salt and pinch of turmeric powder.
  2. Take oil in a pan and allow it to heat until smoke comes out.
  3. Then fry the fish lightly. But don't overfry, otherwise outer part of fish will get tough.
  4. Take out the fish.

My Tip:

When you paste the mustard seeds, add salt and green chilli. It will prevent to get it bitter.
