Macher (Fish) Chop Recipe:
A favorite Bengali festival snack, indulgent fried fish cutlets.
Festival time, especially ‘Durga Puja’ time is quite special in terms of food. While there are elaborate home made preparations of main course and sweets, the quintessential food stalls, along the ‘pujo pandals’ have their own delicious versions of vegetarian and non-vegetarian savories to binge on.
My personal favorite are ‘Moghlai Parota’, piping hot ‘chicken egg rolls’, ‘Fish fry’ and the ‘Macher chop’, which is a kind of fish cutlet. Macher chop goes best with some ‘mustard sauce’ or ‘kashundi’, with finely sliced onions and lemon squeeze. Let’s know the recipe a little better, to savor it at home.
