My blog has completed 3 years of its blogging journey this August, but the blog still needs to grow and I have still need to learn many things. This is the first post of the 4th year of my blogging journey and it is about a simple recipe of scrambled fish egg or fish egg bhurji . I made this recipe little special by adding "khorisa"- grated and fermented bamboo shoots. 

Fish usually lay eggs during monsoon season. Therefore there is a ban on fishing during monsoon in local rivers and ponds in Assam so that the local fishes do not get extinguished. The exported fish and fish from the fisheries are available in the market and fish roe or fish eggs are also widely available during the season. It is usually served as fritters, or as deep fried or shallow fried. Making scrambled fish eggs is very easy and it tastes very yummy.

Monsoon is also the season for bamboo shoots. During this season the raw bamboo shoots are widely available and therefore we preserve it in bottles for fermentation and for later use.
