Rohu roe dumplings are crunchy snack items that we Bengalis fondly savour. You can have it with rice and dal during lunch or dinner, or it can serve as evening time munchies with tea or coffee. Recipe is below:
300 gm Rohu fish roe
1 onion (chopped)
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
6-7 green chillies or as per your taste (finely chopped)
1 tbs besan/gram flour
1 tsp rice flour
salt to taste
white oil for frying
1) Chop the roe into pieces and then in a bowl mix them well with all the above ingredients. Give 1/2 cup water or as required to make a smooth batter. The batter should be of smooth consistency, neither very watery nor very thick.
2) Heat oil in a frying pan and pour a spoonful of batter into the smoking oil. Fry the dumplings on medium heat so that they get fried equally inside and out. Frying the dumplings on high heat will result the outside become very crispy while inside will remain uncooked.
3) When the dumplings change colour into brown, take them off the heat. Serve hot with chutney.
