Puti Maach Er Tok is a quintessential Bengali fish curry prepared a lot during peak summer time. The curry is prepared with small variety of fish and puti maach is one of the many varieties. It is served with steamed white rice.
Doi meaning yogurt and Mach meaning fish is an authentic yogurt based Bengali fish stew. It is a gently spiced fish curry that is hearty and soul satisfying. Traditionally, doi mach is prepared with long silver river fish from the region but that shouldn’t stop you from trying it with your choice of sea fish. Just make sure you select a meaty fish for the best taste. Bengali meals are almost incomplete without some fish curry/stew and when Mom and Dad visit, I over indulge on these dishes. It’s like reliving those childhood days.
