    Recipe courtesy : http://rumis-recipes.blogspot.com/2008/01/doi-ilish-dahi-hilsa.html


    It’s a traditional Bengali preparation. Ilish Machh (Hilsa,Tenualosa ilisa;is cooked with Doi (Dahi/curd) and other spices. Conventionally it is prepared in Mustard oil.

    Difficulty level- easy

    Marinating time- 10 minutes

    Cooking time- 15 minutes

    Total time- 25 minutes

    Ingredients-

    Ilish machh (Hilsa fish) - 500 grams

    Doi- 200 grams

    Mustard oil- 150 grams

    Ginger paste- 1 tsp

    Turmeric powder- 2 tsp

    Mustard seeds- ½ tsp

    Green chilli- 8 pieces

    Salt- to taste

    Marinating process-

    Wash the Ilish fish pieces. Mix turmeric powder and salt thoroughly and keep it aside for 10 minutes.

    The process-

    Grind the mustard seeds with a pinch of salt and a green chilli with some water to make a thick paste. Heat oil in a frying pan for 2 minutes. Add rest of the green chillies in it after slicing vertically. Then add the ginger paste to the oil and stir fry for 2 minutes. Make a thick paste of the turmeric powder with little amount of warm water. Then add to the pan while stirring continuously. Add 250 ml of warm water and salt to taste. When the curry will start to boil, add the Ilish fish pieces in it. Prepare a mixture of the doi (dahi/curd), ½ tsp turmeric powder and mustard paste. Add this mixture to the pan when the fish pieces become tender. Be careful that the mixture should be added evenly.

    When the curry starts boiling again, remove it from the flame.

    The garnishing-

    Add 2 tsp mustard oil and 3 uncut green chillies and cover the pan with a lid.

    Tips-

    Traditionally this preparation is done with the raw Ilish fish pieces. But if you don’t like the smell, fry the pieces lightly in low heat.

    The mustard seeds should be finely grinded along with the green chillies and salt to avoid bitterness.

    Todays diet for eg.
    1 whey shake -> 25gms protein
    350gms chicken breast -> 70gms protein
    250gms greens -> 20gms carbs
    ~250gms lamb -> 55gms protein 30gms fat 10gms carbs
    1 omlette -> 3gms fat 3gms protein.

    total -> 150gms protein 30gms fats 35gms carbs = ~1010 cals.. that's pretty low imo

    Hilsa Biriyani :

    Don't know how will it test, but personally I think Hilsa is better tested if some body cooks it lightly.

    2 Bay leaves
    1tbs Whole garam masala
    1litre Water
    1tsp Salt
    For the Rice
    1/2kg Basmati rice
    1/3cup Ghee
    4 pieces Cinnamon
    4 Cloves
    4 Green cardamoms
    1tsp Salt
    Pinch of saffron soaked in 1/4cup of hot milk

    For the Fish

    1kg Hilsa fish sliced into 10 large pieces
    1tsp Ginger paste
    250 gm Thick curd
    1tsp Turmeric
    1tsp Chilli powder
    1tsp Pepper
    1/2tsp Cumin
    Salt to taste

    Directions

    1. Clean and slice mutton into small pieces. Pressure cook the mutton with all the ingredients for stock for 30 minutes and strain. Only the stock will be needed.

    2. Wash fish and dry completely. Beat the curd and mix with all the other ingredients for the fish. Marinate the fish for 1 hour.

    3. Heat ghee and season with the cinnamon, cloves and green cardamoms in a thick bottom vessel. When it is well fried, add rice and fry lightly. Add salt and hot stock. Cover when the stock comes to a boil and cook over a low heat.

    4. When the water gets absorbed, take out half the rice. Arrange the marinated fish over the rice in the vessel and cover with the rice removed earlier. Sprinkle saffron milk over it.

    5. Seal the vessel with flour dough and steam on a low flame for 30 minutes. Break the seal at the time of serving.
