Mustard Fish ( with a twist ! )
Inspired by the famous Ilish Sarson Jhol .
300 Grams Fish Fillets . In the original version they use Hilsa I think , I used a regular boneless ' Basa ' .
The Paste .
2 Teaspoons Black Mustard Seeds .
2 Teaspoons Yellow Mustard Seeds .
1/2 Coconut grated .
1 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder .
60 Ml Mustard Oil .
Take the above ingredients and grind them to a fine paste . Mix about a mug of water to the paste and set aside .
Meanwhile in a bit of Mustard oil crackle 1/2 teaspoon of Jeera ( Cumin seeds ) , when brown add the fish along with the mustard paste ,simmer for 5 minutes.
Mix in another teaspoon raw mustard oil , add green chillies , cook another 2-3 minutes till done . Keep adding water .
The consistency is like a thick gravy . Eat with rice and hands !
I had some broccoli boiled in the fridge which I dipped into the gravy and realised how great it tasted , so added some ! However , I would stick to the non broccoli version most times !
