Rui Mach ar Pepe’r Jhol (Rohu Fish and Raw Papaya Curry)

Rohu is a very commonly available fish. This curry can be made with any non-veg item you wish if you do not prefer fish, but, I would advice non-veg lovers to definitely try it with fish. Coming to papaya, with the recent developments in agriculture and plantations, papaya is found all year round and is really a very sweet and tasty way of getting healthy. There are many benefits of Raw Papaya and Rohu. Go ahead and try this for a lazy day in the kitchen guys! 🙂
