Mochmochey Bhaja Illish (Hot and Crispy Fried Hilsa With The Fried Fish Oil)

Hi Friends!!! How are you all doing? I'm back after a short break with the Bong Queen of hearts Illish/Hilsa....this is the easiest and the tastiest of fish dishes....Mochmochey Bhaja Illish ar Tel (Hot and Crispy Fried Hilsa with the oil). You will just need steamed rice, a bit of salt and green chillies to enjoy this fascinating fish fry. A two years stay in Amritsar without this fish was so excruciating, the first thing that came to my mind reaching Delhi was Illish and a special monsoon lunch is never complete without this one....So having a fabulous time with the greatest duet of all...the rain and Illish....here goes the simple recipe for all the fish lovers....
