Fish Rezala


'Rezala' is as we all know white, creamy, velvety gravy. In restaurants chicken or mutton rezala are very popular, goes best with Rumali roti. Here is the recipe of mouth watering 'fish rezala' which I ate one of my sister's wedding. There were plenty of delicious items in buffet but 'fish rezala' was the most crowded stall. That was really finger licking good. Always serve Fish Rezala with plain steamed rice. Recipe is the same as usual 'rezala' type, I just made it with fish. Try this in your own kitchen and let me know how it turns out.


  • 3 big pieces of fish (rohu, katla, carp, tilapia).
  • Paste of one small onion.
