Having been in this country for over forty years I have forgotten the taste of many of our typical Bengali dishes. Your recipe brought back many memories. Wish I could taste that too. I'll try to make this with the fish that is available here;but I know it will not be the same.
Please keep writing these recipes for this 'buri bangali'
