ABOUT Machha ambila RECIPE

Ambila is a very popular Odia recipe. Machha ambila can be described as fish cooked in a light sweet-soury-tangy gravy. The combination of tamarind and jaggery gives the gravy an amazing flavour. It can be prepared in this same way using only vegetables too. Ambila is traditionally served with plain rice.
