Hey fish lovers one more recipe for you all.Dahi Maccha can be prepared with any fish but it goes very well Hilsa. This recipe I came to know from very dear friend and neighbour. Thanks to her for sharing her recipe with me.
Dahi Machha is a traditional Odiya delicacy made of raw fish in a spicy yogurt based sauce. It is eaten usually served with rice as an accompaniment. Dahi Machha Jhola is liberally seasoned with turmeric, onions, garlic, mustard and garam masala. The use of turmeric imparts a yellow colour to the sauce base. Before being served, chopped fresh cilantro may be sprinkled on top for added flavour as well as enhanced appearance.
The kinds of fish that typically used in Oriya households are Hilsa (called Ilisi), Rohu (called Rohi), and Catla (called Bhakura). Apart from these, there are some very famous small sized fish that are normally favoured over others.
