Pabda r Tel Jhal | Pabda Macher Jhal | Pabo Catfish Curry (Bengali Style)

As I promised , I will share one more delicious finger licking Pabda recipe. So i am here with this tempting fish curry. Pabda is my one of the favorite fish . In my childhood when my mother was cooking this amazing fish curry i was stunned over its taste. Its so fantastic in taste and color,you cannot believe. Basically small pabda are more tasty than the bigger one, try to buy much whiter also. And if it is from Ganges,then no way! In pune its not possible to get the river fishes , so cooking whatever is available in market. This fish curry will be little rich in color and taste.Little hot and flavorful . But easy to cook and goes very well with plain warm rice.

About nutritional talk, Pabda fish is little calorie oriented fish, it is a combination of full of carbohydrates, and protein . Who have cholesterol problem,try to avoid this fish too.
