- Hilsa Fish – 6 pcs
- Mustard Paste – 1 tbsp
- Chilli Paste – 2 chillies ( or more, if you wish)
- Poppy seed Paste – 1 tsp
- Garlic Paste – 1/2 tsp
- Yogurt – 2 tbsp
- Salt and Turmeric – as per taste
- Mustard Oil – 2-3 tbsp
Mix all of the masala paste along with yogurt, salt and turmeric. Pour a generous amount of Mustard oil into it. Mustard oil is a key ingredient to this recipe and it is a must.
Marinate the fish pieces with the mixture. Keep the fishes aside for 2-3 hours. If you want to have extra curry then add more water.
Pour the marinated fish in a microwave safe bowl, put on the lid and microwave it on high for 5-6 minutes. You may have to adjust the timing based on your microwave capacity.
If you smell the rich aroma of hilsha fish floating on mustard then you’ll come to know why I have mentioned it as bengali’s paradise. .
