Gajalee – The Bombay Duck Is A Fish

By Daniel, October 24, 2011

This is not a joke. The Bombay Duck is not a duck – it is a fish. Its other name is (gasp) lizard fish. Therefore you can try to imagine its size, look and taste – somewhat flat, dry, with little meat, without a distinctive taste, yet often eaten as a delicacy in Mumbai.

The odour of the fish is said to be extremely pungent, and if someone says “You smell like a Bombay Duck”, it is time to take that shower.

The Bombay Duck is actually available in Singapore, found at Gajalee near Centrepoint. The popular version is having the fish coated with masala-based batter and fried golden yellow. Do not worry about the smell as it is no longer there. It acts a greater starter item (somewhat like fried calamari), best to be eaten as an accompaniment to curry.
