Sorshe Tyangra or Mustard Tyangra


Still getting some fresh and oily tyangra fish in the market, which is usually a winter delicacy. Decided to cook it in a mustard based gravy. I have my other tyangra fish recipe in my blog like a regular jhol or posto tyangra. This is an addition to that list. Goes best with rice. Actually, mustard is such a versatile spice that it can be combined with various other masala and each one of the combination will be resulted in a unique experience. Sorshe Tyangra itself can be cooked in various other ways. I am planning to write all of them and want to make a Tyangra series.
