Bhetki Dum Fish


          This is my version of a Bengali Style Dum fish where I used some Bhetki pieces. You can make use of any of your choice of fish. Very easy, simple and at the same time very delicious, this preparation does not need too much of preparation. The whole process of cooking is in a dum style and it can be relished with either plain steamed rice, pulao or plain  Biryani. Do check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.
