Fish intestines are supposed to be a very good source of Omega – 3 , making it a very healthy addition to your plate . Another Assamese recipe , dedicated to the die – hard fish lovers , I present masor petu aru bhat bhaji or fish intestine fried rice .
Its okay to eat fish because they have no feelings . ~ Kurt Cobain
- Masor petu – fish intestine .
- Salt and green chillies according to taste .
- Half a teaspoon of turmeric , cumin and coriander powder .
- One large onion .
- About 100 grams of boiled rice .
- Musturd Oil .
First you need to clean the intestines properly . There will be a small green pouch somewhere with the intestine . Very carefully remove that without damaging , otherwise it will make the whole thing bitter . After that clean it properly and cut into small pieces and then mix it properly with the salt and turmeric powder .
Roughly chop the onions and green chillies . Warm about a tablespoon of mustard oil in a pan and add the chopped onions and chillies . When they start to caramelize , add the masor petu to the pan and stir it . After about five more minutes add the cumin and coriander powder .
Keep stirring occasionally till the fish is fried properly and then add the rice to the fish . Stir again to mix everything properly and cover it for about five minutes . Stir again after that and your masor petu aru bhat bhaji or fish intestine fried rice is ready to be served .
Garnish with green chillies and fresh coriander leaves . This dish is tastiest just off the pan , so try to serve it still warm .
