Mashed Fish Curry/ Nga atoiba thongba – Manipuri Style

This is my first post of fish recipe Inshallah many more will come, most of the time I do not get time to click fish photos as we savor it immediately or I should say we make it ON TIME. I have adapted this recipe from the article has published in Times of India newspaper. 

I have alter it according to my taste bud and original recipe call for Rohu fish but I strongly recommend you get boneless fish for particularly this recipe as we have to mash it later and to avoid any tension during lunch otherwise foodie will complain of getting lots of fish bones.

In general, there is no problem if we are using boned fish, but here we mix them with other tasty ingredients it would make them forget they are eating “FISH”.
I tell you this is awesome mashed fish recipe you have ever had. In additions with green peas, potato and tomato enhances the flavour.

Hey, do you know its Mary Kom’s favorites too.

She is a well-known personality an Indian woman boxer who won world championship five times belongs to Manipur.
