Fish Roe Fry - Chepa Gudlu Vepudu

Fish roe fry considered as a seafood delicacy in Andhra, Kerala, Orissa, West Bengal and some North Eastern States of India. Fish eggs commonly known as Roe are rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fats are essential for a healthy heart and also helpful in reducing symptoms of depression, schizophrenia, and hyperactivity disorders.
The recipe which I'm going to share here is prepared with Hilsa fish roe which is a famous delicacy of Bangladesh and West Bengal.


Fish Roe (Fish eggs) : 500 gm
Eggs : 2
Onion : 2 (Big sized, finely chopped)
Green Chilly : 4 (Finely chopped)
Tomato : 2 (Chopped)
Turmeric Powder : 2 tea spoons
Red Chilly Powder : 1 tea spoon
Curry Masala Powder : 2 tea spoons
Salt : As per taste
Oil : 2 table spoons


Wash and marinate fish roe with 1 tea spoon turmeric powder, 1 tea spoon red chilly powder for 15 minutes
Heat oil in a wok/karahi,  add chopped onions, green chilly and fry till onion turns light pink in color.
Add chopped tomato and fry for 2 minutes
Add turmeric powder, curry masala powder, salt as per taste and fry for 2 minutes
Beat the eggs and add to it, stir fry for 3 minutes.
Add marinated fish roe and stir fry on slow flame for 10 minutes.
Add little water if required (to avoid sticking at the bottom) and cook on medium flame for 10 minutes.

  2. Do you know where we get fish roe in US..

    1. If you have H-mart or any Asian store nearby, you will find it there

  3. Hi Savitha

    You may not get fresh fish roe in Chicago. Fish roe dried, preserved in vacuum sealed plastic bags/boxes can be found at any Mediterranean or Middle Eastern stores but they are too expensive, costing around $20 to $100 per an ounce. You may order fish roe online through Amazon.

  5. very authentic recipe. I have seen them but yet to taste them.


  6. I have never had fish roe; well caviar, which I found too fishy and salty.
