Rohu Fish Paturi( রুই মাছের পাতুরি )

"Happy Mothers' Day"- This three special words were not at all popular when my Mother left me 30 years ago for her heavenly abode. So I take this opportunity to thank Secret Indian Recipe for conveying these three beautiful words to my late mother and to all those mothers who live there lives for the sake of their children. Thank you to provide me a platform for sharing my mom's treasured recipe(s).
