Pabda is a freshwater fish. Taste of the Pabda Fish is much sweeter than other fishes you get particularly in West Bengal or Bengal. It’s a very popular fish in Bangladesh than in Inda. Bengalese of Bangladesh also eat this fish in their own way. They also make a Pabada tel jhal but in a very different way than Bengalese in India. This fish is also available in Pakistan and Nepal and they also eat this fish with their country style. Pabda fish is a well-known fish of West Bengal, India.

Is OMPOK and Indian Pabda Fish both are the same Fish?

Yes, both are the same fish. These fish belong to  “SILURIDAE” FISH FAMILY. This fish found in Asia and south Aisa’s Rivers. So the people of Asia and south-east Asian countries actually eat this fish a lot. And I guess most of the Asian people like this fish because of it’s sweet and soft flesh and the most important thing is this fish has less bone than other fishes and it has no fish scale.  For the reason, it is easy to eat by everyone. Even kids can eat this fish because it has less bone. My recommendation is if you get this fish in a fish market must buy it and cook it. I am sure you will like its taste and texture.

Is the fish oily?

This fish is oily. I found many times more oil in the fish curry which I did not use for sure in the recipe while making. I will suggest you use less oil when you fry the fish and just make sure your frying pan is hot enough with little oil. It’s important to know that this fish always stick on the pan because of its skin. Therefore always make your pan hot enough when you fry this fish. Then your fried fish will come out perfectly without any mess.
