This recipe is a traditional Bengali fish preparation. ‘Dahi’ means yogurt and ‘Katla’ is a fish. Fish used is the common freshwater fish. Choose a big fish weighing about 5 kg. Often the fishermen or women who sell these fishes do not expect you to buy the whole fish; therefore you can buy one kilo or 2 kg. For this preparation, you need to select portions from the stomach of the fish. I tried many kinds of Fish preparation, but this recipe is an excellent dish for my family as well as me. You can try this recipe with any white fish.
We all know fish is fully packed with protein, vitamins, and nutrients that can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Another great thing is it’s a great source of calcium, phosphorus, and minerals. Being fully loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and B2 it can help you to increase your brain power as well.
Yogurt is also an excellent source of essential carbohydrates and a punch of protein. The protein needs for building muscles and also improves their natural functioning.Studies have shown that yogurt is also an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin B5, zinc, potassium, protein, and molybdenum.
