Recipe Description:

The area known as Bengal covers the fertile floodplains of the world’s largest delta, where the Ganges river meets the sea. ‘Fish and rice make a Bengali’, goes the saying, and indeed macher jhol (‘fish stew’) is still the main event at the multi-course extravaganza that is a traditional Bengali meal. While the ingredients might seem humble, Bengali techniques maximise on flavour. Frying the fish to develop a flavourful sear is crucial, as is the mustard seed tarka at the stew’s base. Mustard is treated as a spice, vegetable and cooking oil; its surprisingly pungent kick leaps out of the region’s deceptively simple home cooking.
