Rohu With Mustard / Poppy seed Paste/Sorshe RuiRohu With Mustard / Poppy seed Paste/Sorshe Rui

I am Bengali by my roots. However, yesterday I realized I do not have many Bengali recipes in my blog. That is why I thought of  writing this simple and authentic Bengali recipe. Fried fish and mustard/poppy seeds is a fantastic combination. My friend who lives in U.K came to Kolkata for a short break and  visited me yesterday. She was very happy and enjoyed having shorshe rui , as they don't get the opportunity to have Bengali food in U.K too often. Hope you like it! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!!)

Fried fish

            Sorry, I didn't give all the step-by step pictures.


  • Rohu fish - 8-10 pieces
  • Onion paste - 3 tbsp
  • Mustard & poppy seed paste- 50 gms each
  • Kalonji seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Green chilli - 6-7
  • Tomato - 1 (sliced)
  • Coriander leaves - a few sprigs
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 1 tsp 
  • Salt - to taste
  • Mustard oil for cooking


1. Coat the fishes sprinkling salt and turmeric powder and deep fry them in hot oil.
2. In the same oil, add kalonji seeds. When it splutters add the onion paste and stir till it turns golden brown in colour. Pour in the tomatoes and shallow fry.
3. Add turmeric powder, green chillies, and sugar. Saute the mixture for 2-3mins.
4. Next add the mustard & poppy seed paste diluted with 1/2 cup of water and the slit green chillies. Add salt and cook covered, stirring frequently for 10 mins.( If the gravy seems too dry, you may add some more water. But the gravy of this dish should be rather thick in consistency.)
5.Slide in the fried fishes and simmer for 4-5 mins. Turn off the flame.
6. Drizzle a spoonful of raw mustard oil on top and garnish with coriander leaves and green chillies.
7. Serve with hot steamed rice. It tastes really yummy.
