Goodness, Bengalis love whitebait. We are the ultimate fish lovers and this dish has the wonderful accessibility of also being perfect finger food. On the streets of India we buy these in generous paper cones and walk along, knocking them back with gay abandon. I had whitebait served similarly in Seville, a gorgeous crunch but I did miss the spice.
