2.Season with Kalo Jeera & 2 Green Chillies (Today I didnt use the green chilli for seasoning).

4.Add the masala paste. Stir and cook the paste (moshla koshano)
5.Keep sprinkling water from time to time
6.Add the fried fish. Turn them around in the wok to coat the fish with masala but taking care so as not to break them.

8.Add the fried /roasted Bori
9.Check the salt.
10.The gravy should be of thin consistency. If required, add water. Bring to a boil.
11.Add 2-3 slit green chillies and garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.
