I have some 4/5 bhetki fillets and a small fulcopi / cauliflower with fresh and soft stems. So I cleaned the stems with water first, then peel them and removed the hard part of it. Steamed the stems lightly before starting the preparation. Goes well with your rice and dal.
- Fish fillet – 4-5
- Cauliflower – cut into small florets
- Cauliflower stem – 1 cup
- Corn kernels – a handful (Optional, I have some, so used it.)
- Leafy vegetable – a handful ( again optional)
- Onion -1, chopped
- Ginger Paste – 1 tsp
- Mustard paste – 1 tsp
- Green chilli – as per taste
- Salt, Turmeric, Red chilli powder, Sugar

In a pan, add mustard oil. When it is hot, add cumin seeds and let it splutter.
Add chopped onion and slitted green chilli and fry till golden brown. Then add the ginger paste and fry well.
Add salt, turmeric and red chilli powder and fry the masala mixture till oil comes out.
Add the stems with cauliflower florets and green leafs,if using. Mix well with the masalas. Add little water and cook covered. Add the fried fish pieces and cover it again after giving it a good stir.
When vegetables are almost done, add the corns, if using.
When vegetables are cooked and water is evaporated, add the mustard paste and give it a good stir.
Sprinkle some sugar. Remove from heat and add a spoonful of ghee. Give it a final stir and keep covered for 10 minutes.
