Doi Rui is an East Indian fish recipe originally submitted by Sheila Sharma from Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
Sheila says this about her fish recipe: In Bengali, Doi means ‘curd’ and Rui means ‘Rohu fish’. Here is a very tasty dish made with fish and curd.
Sheila’s recipes are so good. I have no doubt that if you love Indian food, this recipe be just as good.
