Mustard Fish ( with a twist ! )

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 .
Salt .
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 !

This is the easiest and fastest fish I have made .
