What Is Best Alternative To Rohu Fish?
If you live in North America and are a Bengali you most likely have Rohu or Rui Maach. It’s like a everydaty Bengali Fish. We get Rohu fish mostly imported from Bangaldesh as a whole frozen fish or cleaned and cut into froze cubes.
I found them sometimes too old almost more that a year from its original packaging date. Also, they overtime lose their freshness and original taste. Most of time I had to throw away the fish heads as they smell too fishy which I could have used it in the Muri Ghnto or Mache Muror Dal.
So I found this fish which is called Carp. It has almost the same taste as the Rohu fish, it’s a strong alternative for Rohu lovers. I get them live from store aquarium and it’s really cheap sometime avaiable for $1.99/lb. You need to take the whole fish which could be about 6-7 pounds. What I do it I freeze them and use it as much as I want. It’s always better than 1 year old frozen Bangaladesh rui maach.
You can cook Carp the same way as some of these Rohu fish recipes.
