    I LOVE fish…my dad would totally go for this, but I admit…fish brains aren’t something I would normally go for, but as usual, you make everything look great.

    Love the dish but have always been afraid of cooking it myself! First had it in the Indian quarter of Singapore, at Banana Leaf Apollo, where banana leaves were laid down in the middle of a table, followed by piles of rice and then the most fragrant fish head curry with all the ingredients! ‘Course it was finger food, and ‘course we stayed for hours and had the bestest fun . . . and now I do hope I can replicate myself!!!!

    I’ve had fish stocks that were made from fish heads, but never fish heads themselves. This sounds really interesting! Great flavors and a fun recipe. Good stuff – thanks.

    Purabi, this dish will get thumbs up from my father and 2 brothers. The men in the house love their fish curry 🙂 I do eat fish curry, but I prefer chicken or mutton. Mum loves fish curry too. So I’m going to bookmark this recipe and try it out and surprise the family 🙂

    Well now this is quite different. I’ve made seafood stocks, but have never used a fish head in anything. At first I thought you weren’t going to remove the broken pieces of fish head. 🙂 I bet that stock makes this curry very rich tasting and make you think you are actually eating fish. Thanks for sharing such a traditional, family recipe!

    The head is my fav too. Surprisingly my other half who can survive on fish everyday does not eat the head. The curry is very tempting and yes, a perfect and tasty pairing with rice.

    It’s a treat to read about your favorite foods, Purabi. Admittedly, I’ve never eaten a fish head, but in my family’s heritage, nothing went to waste either. There was always a talented cook who could coax the flavor out of every last bit!

    I love that I learn so much when I visit your site! I adore curry and have never cooked with fish heads. I think people tend to shy away from things that don’t come all wrapped up, pre-chopped in a pretty little package. Your sense of adventure is wonderful and contagious! I need to go get me a fish head!!

    Oooooo I am one of those who shy away from fish heads. I don’t like it when my food looks at me. However, you speak so enthusiastically about this dish, I’ve got to try it my friend!

    I admit to being a bit squeamish about fish heads though I imagine the flavor must be wonderful. My husband did eat quite a few in China and tells me the cheeks are quite good. He never did get used to the eyes even though he ate many! Go figure.

    It was nice to read about your family kitchen. My friend is a fish-head fan, he claims that the best fish meet is in cheeks 🙂

    Thanks Purabi, I just cooked the “MuRi Ghonto” based on your recipe using a tuna fish head, in my kitchen in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). And it has turned out great! Thanks again

    I liked this recipe. This is one of my favorite dish based on fish. A great traditional bengali dish. I always love to have this on various occasion or without any occasion.
