    This seems very similar to the Bengali machher jhol. Did the recipe travel from Bengal to the Andamans?

    1. You are absolutely right, most of the Andamanese are Bengalese, and Macher Jhol brought to Andaman from Bengal. You will be happy to know, Macher Jhol is one of the most famous dish in Andaman Islands. Thank you very much.🙏😊💖
