Zamin Doz Machhli

Zamin Doz Machhli is a traditional fish dish from the royal kitchens of Awadh. In this old recipe, a whole fish is stuffed with spices, sealed in an earthenware case, buried in the ground and cooked by placing cowdung-cake fire on the ground above. It is a strenuous effort and takes 6-8 hrs. This dish has a hearty earthy flavor. In days of yore, this dish was prepared in special earthenware cases according to the size and shape of the fish to be cooked.
