We, Bengalis, love to eat fish in many forms. One of the popular snack of West Bengal is 'macher chop'. Spicy crumbled fish inside and crispy coating outside - scrumptious !! We both usually enjoy this snack in the evening along with a cup of tea or with a can of beer. Both combos are unbeatable. If you have to impress any Bengali ever in your life, just indulge him/her in 'Bikeler adda' (evening gossip), 'a cup of tea', Macher chop' and 'Rabindra sangeet'. I can gurantee he/she will request you to arrange another meeting soon ?. Try this in your kitchen and enjoy a special evening with your loved ones.
