Bina's Begun Diye Shutki (Eggplant-Dry Fish Curry)

    40 mins

    This is a typical everyday dish, and is a favorite to shukti(uncooked dry fish) fans. However, many people do not like the strong smell of the uncooked dry fish, but I LOVE shutki, so I had to share this recipe I have collected recently from my friend, Bina :)

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 kg eggplant
    • 250 g of potatoes
    • A little less than 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
    • 1 big onion sliced
    • 4 small Chidol shutki

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Chop the eggplant into medium sized cubes. Peel the potatoes and cut into long rectangular shaped strips.
    2. Wash the Chidol shutki properly. Cut the big onion into thin slices. Set a small pan on high heat and add the vegetable oil. When the oil begins to sizzle, add the sliced onions and fry until the onions turn slightly brown. Add the shutki and fry on high heat.
    3. As the shutki gets fried, crush the garlic cloves in a mortar using a pestle. When the shutki turns soft, add salt, turmeric and red chilli powder. Stir well and add the chopped eggplants and potato strips. Finally add the crushed garlic cloves and stir for a few minutes.
    4. Cover the pan with its lid on low heat for 10-15 minutes.
    5. Serve by sprinkling some chopped green chillies.
