Lebu Patay Rui Mach


I used Rohu fish with bone in this recipe.If you want, you can use any big fish or fish fillet. Using sugar will not make the dish; sugar is used to enhance flavour. Enjoy the flavour of Bangladesh.

    Your blog always take me back to my childhood days. It makes me very very nostalgic. Surprisingly like the other fan of your great blog, I was also thinking to shift next to your residence. If not to eat but to be blessed by the aroma of great food you cook.
    Best Wishes
