Variation to Bhapa Chingri
You can try cooking other fishes too using the same recipe. The most favorable is Prawn to me as it’s my sister favorite.But again bong loves to experiment with fishes. Bhapa-Illish is one of the popular preparations.
You can also cook small fishes which goes well with rice. The poppy seed and coconut results a creamy texture in Bhapa Chingri. As poppy seed costs a bit more, many people use white mustard seed instead of that. White Poppy seed works well as a substitute offering a creamy flavor.
