Cauliflower is a seasonal vegetable, can be eaten in many ways. There are many recipes with only cauliflowers. By adding another vegetable or fish or meat, its taste, and food value increase. Cauliflower Eggplant Recipe is one such item. In this recipe, the main ingredients are cauliflower and eggplant. I add here fish for extra taste and protein. If you don’t want to add fish, you can cook the combination of vegetables with cauliflower and eggplant.

In Cauliflower Eggplant Curry with the fish recipe, I use Hilsha fish (National fish of Bangladesh). You can use any kind of fish like prawn, carp fish, or any other fish as per your choice. Hilsha fish has an awesome flavor and taste of fish itself. Hilsha is famous in Bangladesh and India for its silver outlook, shape, and taste. By its appearance and shape, Sardine fish although looks like Hilsha, but the taste is not the same.
