Parsi Fish in White Sauce (saas ni machhi)

  

November 2, 2017

Saas ni Machhi is made from Pomfret which is the common fish used for this recipe or any white fish can be used. It is very tasty Parsi dish. I have cooked this Parsi Fish in White Sauce many times and very delicious. This is also served at Parsi Weddings with rice. The egg, vinegar and sugar in the ingredients gives a real punch to the dish.
