Chepa Shutki Biran / Chepa Shutki Bhuna
Chepa shutki is a semi dried traditional fermented fish. Usually dry fish is baked under sun, but Chepa shutki is made with semi fermentation. It is origin to Mymensingh district of Bangladesh. Like other dry fish chepa shutki is cooked with lots chilli and garlic. Some likes to use dry chilli paste(to soak dry chilli and make paste of it), but I find chilli powder more easy and handy. Enjoy.
