ABOUT Machher kofta/ Bengali style Fish kofta RECIPE

All time loved dish of Bengali people , machher kofta with big , fried chunks of potatoes in yoghurt gravy . It can be enjoyed in dinner parties , any special occasion or even for festive days. Here in Bahrain I hardly get any river fish like rohu , katla , telapia or the famous Hilsa . We have to satisfy ourselves with some local sea fishes . This recipe goes best with Rohu or Tilapia , i have used Hummour fish fillates . Currently staying in Bahrain
