Doi Rui

Doi Rui, is another favorite of Bengali's. My mom, and aunts used to make this Bengali delicacy on special occasions. This recipe is curd or yogurt based, and the taste is a little sweet.

Ingredients: Doi Rui
  • 6 Rui/American Carp Pieces
  • 1 large Onion Paste
  • 2 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 1/2 cup Yogurt
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 2 Cloves
  • 2 Cardamom Pods
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 tbsp Raisins
  • 1-2 Green Chillies
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala Powder

Clean the fish pieces, lightly rub salt and turmeric powder and shallow fry them.

In a pan, heat 2 tsp oil, add the Bay Leaf, the Cinnamon, Cloves and Cardamom. After about a minute, add the Onion paste, Ginger paste and stir fry till the onions turns brown. Beat the curd/yogurt with salt and sugar and keep it aside. Switch off the gas, and let the pan cool before pouring in the beaten yogurt, to avoid curdling of the yogurt. Stir well to avoid any lumps. Then turn the gas to low, cover and cook for about 10 minutes. Next add the fried fish pieces, raisins, salt and green chillies to taste. Simmer and bring the gravy to boil, add the Ghee and the Garam Masala Powder. Serve this Doi Rui over plain Basmati Rice.
