Mustard fish curry any one? Recipe is here....

Mustard fish curry any one? Recipe is here....

I cooked fish curry in mustard paste other day after a long time! Accompanied vegetarian dishes are masoor dal (red lentil), dhonka'r dalna (split pea lentil cake in a curry) and brussels's sprout with bengali five spice mix.

Mustard fish curry recipe:

Any kind of freshwater fish or shad/cod/ mahimahi: 2 lbs
Mustard paste:
Yellow mustard seeds: 3 table spoons
Brown mustard seeds: 2 table spoon
Salt: for your taste
Little bit of oil ( mustard oil is good, if you can stand it!)
Little water to grind

Grind all of them in paste to in a small grinder.

Oil to cook: One or two tbsp
green chillies: two of them ( more if you want spicy)
salt: to taste and marinade the fish
Turmeric: to marinade the fish

Wash and marinade the fish for 5-10 minutes before cooking.

In a Kadhai or Wok add some oil and let it get hot. Add the marinated fish. Fry both sides very lightly. Add turmeric powder, green chillies and salt.

Now add the mustard paste with water and let it boil. Please do not fry the mustard paste. It makes the paste bitter. It should be dry curry not very watery and remove it after 10 minutes or so.
