About this recipe: Bengali cuisine would not be complete without Shutki ( dry fish), especially Shutki Bhorta. This recipe is by Bina, and it is definitely spicy and yummy! Shutki bhortas are served with steaming plain white rice. I personally like to mix in a bit of daal to the bhorta and rice. Enjoy!
