Maasor konir Tenga..........(Fish eggs cooked with Thekera Tenga/Garcinia)

মাছর কণীর টেঙ্গ 


  • 100 grm fish eggs/roe (Rohu or catla fish)
  • 5-6 pieces of thekera( Mangosteen/ garcenia), soaked in water for an hour
  • 2 pinches of turmeric powder
  • salt to taste
  • Mustard Oil 
  • a pinch of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seed
  • 1 whole green chilly
  • 1 tsp flour


  • First clean the eggs properly
  • Now boil the fish eggs for five minutes (Add a pinch of salt in the water at the time of boiling)
  • (Instead of boiling you can fry the eggs too. But personally I love to boil the fish eggs. The boiling process increases the volume of the eggs)
  • Strain the water and keep the eggs aside to cool. 
  • Heat the mustard oil and add 1tbs mustard seeds, turmeric powder, chilly and salt according to your taste.
  • add the thekera pieces (which were soaked in water)
  • Add the water in which the thekera was soaked, along with another glass of water, and simmer for a minute.
  • Mix the flour with a little water to make a light paste and add to the pan.
  • Now add the boiled fish eggs to the pan and cook for 15 minutes .
  • Finally, it is ready to serve with rice.
