Machher muror jhaal / Spicy fish head



On poila boishakh, my hubby brought a giant Rohu fish whose head alone was of 1.8 kilos in weight. Although he relishes any preparation of fish headvery much but that day he has  specially requested for these  dish which my mother in law used to make always for him during his childhood days. In this preparation whole fish head is cut into two halves and fry each half with spices keeping the piece intact, so I think you have already understood how much effort has to be given to cook it.
