Rui (Ruhi) Fish curry with Peas
When we are talking about Bangladeshi food first thing comes our mind is fish. Fish and Bangladesh are interrelated. Fish curry is becoming more popular nowadays worldwide because fish is healthier than meat. Here I use Ruhi fish but you can use your choice fish/any fish cutlet. Even you can omit peas too. Hope you will like.
