Fish Egg Fry / Fish Egg Bhurji – How to make Fish Egg fry

Standard

Coming to fish egg, most of us don’t eat, it was the same with me too. But recently when one of my friend told me about the taste and the richness of vitamin – D in it, I wish to give a try. Nowadays most of the kids play indoor with electronic devices, we could see here and there white spots in their face, I too experienced the same. When I consulted Doctor about this, she told its lack of vitamin – D, as they are not exposed to sunlight. So, after coming across the richness of Vitamin – D in Fish egg, gave a try and since it was my first time, I checked with my neighbor (hometown – Tuticorin), about the cleaning and how to cook and this resulted in Fish Egg fry or Fish Egg Bhurji.
