Fish Roe/ Egg cutlet

fish egg cutlet

Fish Roe/Egg is a delicacy in Bengali cuisine and is one of my favorites from childhood. So this time when I visited my parent's place, my father got some Fish egg separately from the market. Every monsoon this is available in plenty and can be cooked as cutlets or in gravy. The cutlets made here is from Katla . They can be prepared in minutes , serve them as lip smacking delicacies in appetizers or in spicy gravy or just as a snack with a hot cup of tea.

Preparation time : 5 minutes
Cooking time : 5 to 7 minutes
Serves : 4
