sharing some of authentic Assamese Fish Recipes for a delicious twist of your taste buds.
Pura Maas Pitika: A much loved recipe from our native. Freshly found local fishes are fire-grilled and mashed with chopped onions, chillies, ginger, salt and few drops of mustard oil. Taste? Just heavenly! Try it.
Aadar Jaal dia Borali Maas: Little bit spicy fish curry straight from the kitchen of Lower Assam (especially very popular in Barpeta District). Cook up Borali Fish in a ginger gravy and team it up with steamed rice to create a perfect, Assamese meal.
Thekera dia Maasor Tenga: When we are talking about different types of sour curry than how can we forget the most popular traditional dish "Thekera dia Maasor tenga" ? This is a lip smacking recipe with goodness of the main souring agent "Thekera (Garcinia)".
Xaru Maas Bhoja: Preparation of this recipe usually doesn't require much of ingredients. Turmeric powder and salt coated small fishes are stir fried with chopped onions, green chillies, garlic cloves and chopped coriander leaves.
Til dia Maas: “Til” is sesame seed and “Maas” is Fish and when the mix of the two is perfectly blend, there are very few dishes that can beat this simple preparation.
Xaru Maas xaak Bhaji: This is my personal favourite recipe. A delectable dish cooked with mix leafy vegetables and small fishes is something you can enjoy with rice.
