The year-round, all-season Bengali table rice has been paired here with our version of shorshe maach, using all the parts of the mustard plant: young leaves and fronds, seeds, pickled flowers and young stalks and leaves in the sauce and a rui collar, one of the most flavourful and tender but under-utilised parts of the fish. 

 

about the rice

Dudhersar is probably the best known and most consumed table rice variety in Bengal. The easy availability and even easier cooking makes it a go-to lunch favourite.

what you can cook with
