‘Shorshe mach’ or fish in mustard sauce is a classic dish in Bengali cuisine. ‘Shorshe mach’ with steamed rice is a something that no Bengali, rather no fish-lover can say no to. But in this current situation of lockdowns and isolation, in the wake of Covid-19 threats, getting fish and other groceries has become a bit tough as people are resisting themselves from stepping out of houses. Hence, getting fresh fish has become quite a tough job. Fret not! We have a solution to this. You can try to replace the fish with egg in the same recipe.
Storing eggs is an easier job than getting fish. In this lockdown situation, when people are storing groceries and other basic necessities at home, getting egg anytime of the day is simple. Egg has always been an easy and hassle-free food for most of the people. It is one such food item that can easily fit in any part of a full course meal- from starter to dessert. Other than its varied culinary usage, egg has several nutritional values too. It is rich in protein, omega-3 fats, vitamins and minerals. Hence it is easily available in almost every household.
