|Raw hilsa reference.|
1 Ilish (Hilsha) fish, cut into steaks
2 tablespoon mustard (or ground mustard paste)
3 tablespoon white til paste
6 green chilies
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 tablespoons oil, mustard oil preferred
Salt to taste (approximately 1 tbsp salt)
Few sprigs of coriander leaves for garnish
Wash the fish well.
In a container mix the mustard paste, til paste, turmeric, 1tbsp of mustard oil and salt.
I'd use a set of pressure cooker partitions and set them one on top of the other with a lid on the top-most container.
Add about 1/4th cup water in the cooker and let the fish steam over medium heat till about the release of the first pressure.
Switch off. Let the pressure settle.
Carefully transfer the fish into a serving dish. You could garnish this with a few sprigs of coriander spread over the dish.
Serve with hot steamed rice.
