Fish egg tikkis (Macher Bora)

I know all my bengali friends are smiling to see this recipe.Its a very common dish made in Bengali household but I thought of sharing with everyone as it is very tasty to eat and is not possible to have it, in any restaurant anywhere.


1.Rohu Fish eggs - 200gms(for this you have to ask your fish merchant to give, in your local fish market.Its                                                              
easily available)
2.Besan(chick pea flour) - 4tsp
3.Onion - 1no(medium sixe finely chopped)
4.Green chilly - 3nos(finely chopped)
5.Cumin seeds - 1tsp
6.Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
7.Salt to tatse
8.Mustard oil for shallow frying


In a mixing bowl mix all the ingredients except oil.The mixture will not be very thick.Heat oil in a frying pan and put small portions of the mixture.It will be sticky,but don't worry fish eggs will take shape with heat once you release on the pan.Fry from both sides.You can pierce with a fork to see whether its fully cooked.Serve hot with main course.

Note - Traditionally they are deep fried and besan proportion is more in such case but I like in this form, to keep the calorie count low.
