Macher Kofta Curry

Macher Kofta Curry / Fish Kofta Curry

Bengali and fish are so related that they give compliment to each other. But those bangladeshi kids who brought up in aboard are hard for them to cop up with fish bone. This recipe is specially for those kids. Macher kofta curry is very simple curry recipe with great result. Actually it is my own little creation when I started to cook in the begining. Just be make sure not to over fry the koftas . If you want to make only Kofta , use more onion and fry them till gold brown. Hope all of you will like this one.



For Kofta:

  • 300 grams Basa fillet(any white fish fillet)
  • ½ slice white bread
  • 1 sliced small onion
  • 2 green chillies
  • Fresh coriander leaves
  • ½ teaspoon Salt

For gravy:

  • 1 small sliced onion
  • 1 tablespoon onion paste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teasoop fried cumin powder
  • 100 gram coconut cream
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 tablespoon oil
  • Salt to tase
  • Fresh coriander leaves

How to make:

  1. Take fish fillet, bread, onion, chillies, coriander and salt in a food processor and have a quick mix.
  2. Form the fish mix in small balls and fry them both side slightly. We don’t want them fully cooked. We want them half done. Keep them aside.
  3. Add sliced onion in oil and fry them till golden brown.
  4. Add onion paste, ginger paste, chilli powder, turmeric, coconut cream, bay leaf and salt one by one.
  5. Fry the spice mix 1-2 minutes and add enough water to cover the kofta.
  6. Bring to boil and add the kofta and cover the lid.
  7. Cook 3-4 minutes and turn the kofta .
  8. Cook 2 minutes  and add fried cumin and fresh coriander leaves.

  2. Thank you so much for all your recipes! I grew up in America since the age of 4. I don’t know how to read or write in bangla but speak it fluently. It is very nice to see a blog which I can read. I love all your recipes! I got married a few years ago to a non Bengali who loves Bengali food! I realized since we are expecting our first child that in order to preserve my culture and teach my child about Bengali food, I need to cook more often! We love Bengali food, I grew up with it and my husband enjoys it a lot. Thank you so much for helping me with my journey!
