Another lovely fish recipe from Bengal's kitchen. Pabda , hope you have heard ever the name obviously. Bengali cooking cannot be think without fishes. In Bengal tradition they are the mostly known people who love to eat fishes vigorously in various style. In this particular fish recipe they are eating the same fish in different styles.
