Doi Pabda or Pabda Fish with Curd

In Bengal there is a famous small fish Called “Pabda Mach” or “Pabda Fish”. It’s really very tasty; if it’s not too big then we never used to cut the fish while cooking. Some time we love to have the fried fish also. So many different recipes are there but today I prepared some “Doi Pabda” Pabda fish with Curd. It’s a very easy recipe but belive me the dish is so good. Every time we are not that lucky to get fresh fish here, but this time the fish is really very fresh. So what for we are waiting let’s start.

Preparation time: 15 mints.
Cooking time : 20 mints.


1.Pabda Fish : 6 piece.
2.One small sliced onion.
3.Few chopped tomato.
4.Few Kalonji.
5.Two tea spoon curd.
6.Turmeric powder, Cumin powder, Red chili powder, Coriander powder (Half tea spoon of all item).
7.Twp split green chilies.
8.Salt & Sugar as per taste.
9.Mustard oil.


Marinate the fish pieces with some salt & turmeric powder, and fry them till the fish pieces golden brown.

Now make a mixture with curd and all the spices powder with some water.

Now put oil in a vessel and the Kalonji after 2 mints add the sliced onion and tomato. Fry till the onions are transparent.

Now add the curd mixture with some salt and sugar and cook till the oil separate.
