Today’s my experimental dish is “Katla Fish Curry”. Katla fish is very testy and a healthy food. This fish is very popular to all type of people of south Asia and it’s a good source of Calcium and Vitamin C. Katla fish is very rich in Vitamin C, whose benefits includes, but are not limited to protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. Important nutritive value in 100 grams of Katla like energy- 111 ecals, moisture-74gm, protein-19gm, fat-2gm, carbohydrates-3gm, calcium-530mg, Iron-1mg and phosphorus-235mg. Katla fish is consumed as a staple food on every day basis; we market the fish at very reasonable price.
I tried to make it bit different from the way my mom & mother in law normally cooked it, but it’s homely and easy.
