Rohu Roe fritters .... Rui Machher Dimer Bora

A dull grey rainy day culminates into an evening of continuous rains. As with the weather outside, the ambience within the four walls was also dull, damp and grey!
Boredom was further enhanced by the fact that the Friday evening was not only a rainy evening, but was about to be followed by AD's Maths Exams the following day i.e Saturday....what could be worse!

Well, had to spice up the tea time with something more than the biscuits and the 'Bhujiawallah' snacks!!
So the 4kg Rohu's Roe, sitting in the freezer, was brought out, thawed, spiced up and deep fried and savoured with mugs of hot steaming ginger tea! Aaaah Bliss.....

The recipe....

Roe of a 4kg Rohu roe yielded about 38-40 (1.5" dia) fritters or 'Boras'
Onion - 1...finely chopped
Ginger - 1 tsp grated 
garlic - 2-3 cloved chopped
Green chillies - as many as the heat factor allows
Besan or gram flour - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil to deepfry.

Procedure :
1. Mix the roe with all the above ingredients. 
2. Make coin sized balls and flatten
3. Deep /shallow fry on a non-stick pan
4. Serve hot with tea/coffee.

These 'Bodas' or fritters can be an accompaniment to Plain Rice-(Mushurir/Masoor) Dal. 
Another option would be to make a gravy with onion, tomato and potato and add these fritters and make what in bengali is known as 'Maachher Dim er Bora'r Dalna'
