Fish head with mashed Brinjal (Bengena aru Masor mur)

  • Brinjal – 1 big one
  • 1 fried fish head-Bhokua(Katla), Rohu(Rou)
  • Chopped Tomatoes – 2 medium
  • Slit Green Chillies – 2
  • Minced Ginger – 1 tbsp
  • Minced Garlic – 1 tbsp

  • Oil – 2 tbsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • 2 cups water
  • Coriander leaves

  • Roast the brinjal for around 10-15 minutes

  • Throw in the chopped tomatoes and cook until mashed and pulpy.
