As the doctor says, Hilsa fish is full of heart friendly omega 3 fatty acid. We Bongs however just love hilsa, even its oil tastes so good, you can finish a full plate of rice with it. This is such a favourite in my family that I invented this dish to get everybody their share of hilsa oil.


  • Oil collected from Hilsa – 1/2 cup
  • potato – 1, thinly sliced
  • green chilli – 4, sliced
  • turmeric
  • salt

Heat few drops of mustard oil in a pan. You may even omit this since the solid fish oil itself will release oil. Then add the potato and fish oil with a pinch of salt and turmeric and stir continuously.

Cook till the potatoes softened and mixed thoroughly with the fish oil. Add sliced green chilli and serve with plain rice. Yah…it is that simple.
