Muri Ghonto Recipe

Whenever we talk of a Bengali dish, the name of macher jhol or some delicious sweet will always come to our tongue. But it's not that there is nothing else in the Bengali cuisine apart from this. It also has a prevalent fish recipe known as muri ghonto. ‘Muri’ means fish head, and ‘Ghonto’ stands for the mushy curry. Muri Ghonto is a fantastic dish that doesn't go well with other flavoured foods. Do you know fish heads, rice, and other spices are predominantly used to make this dish? It is a popular recipe originating from the state of Bengal in the Indian subcontinent served as a side dish with hot rice, dinner or evening snacks. Muri Ghonto is a classic Bengali fare prepared for ages in Bengali houses. Usually, a whole fish comes from the market to cook in a Bong house. However, Bengalis have a distinct soft corner for fish, and it's essential to utilize per piece of the fish to prepare pleasing dishes.
