Clean the fish roe nicely.

Also add the besan if using. I sometimes omit this and it doesnot taste bad that way too.
Give it a nice stir so that the masalas mix well with the fish roe.
Keep aside for 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a frying pan. When it is hot, take a spoonful of the fish roe mixture and fey on medium heat till well done from all the sides.
