Fish Head Curry Recipe is an authentic preparation in Odisha. Mostly Rohu or Catla fish head is used in the recipe.

Rohu and Catla are the two common fish that are eaten in Odisha. But do you know they cook that big fish head too. Usually in a wedding function it’s a must for the lunch if fish is cooked for the diner party .While some enjoy them as deep fried ,some cook those fried heads with Cabbage or vegetables.
