Doi Maach/ Fish In Yoghurt Gravy

This is a very authentic Bengali fish dish which is quite easy to prepare and served typically on any special or festive occasion. Some do not fry the fish but marinates the raw fish in the yoghurt mixed with turmeric, red chilli, salt and sugar and then adds to the onion paste. But I made the fried fish version. Just try it out and I think you will like it.  N'joy!!
