Macher Dim Bora Rohu Roe Boras

Little flavoursome crispy morsels

Rohu macher dim bora, or to be precise Rohu fish eggs/roe. There is so much you can yield from fish! They are very giving in terms of what you can do with all its parts!

Bengali are very resourceful in that respect. We eat the fish tip to tail and one such yield is good old roe!

There can be an abundance of fish roe in some of the huge fish caught. These roe are cooked and used in many ways!

I like these spicy boras. Lots of onions, fresh chillies and a little spice. Off you go…little delights.

You can make them with any fish eggs! All I say is make them!
