Fish Roe (Gaboli) Curry
It's rare to find fish with its roe intact in a place like Mumbai. In all likelihood, it disappears mysteriously if you are ignorant about fish and if it is carrying eggs or not. And if you're dealing with a dishonest fish vendor, you may never have the luxury of eating some good fish or fish roe. After a very long time, we had the sheer pleasure of enjoying this dish because the roe was huge and my Mum decided to make a curry out of it. This is a Hilsa/ Bhing fish roe. It was massive as you can see below. Want this recipe? Scroll down quick!
