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.

Lol singhji you are HEAVY.....
Then, I can imagine how would your real diet would be :D.
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

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.

Momo is my very much favourite Dish, actually it is very much popular in Kolkata, I think it is giving Chowmein a run for money. In office para from street vendors it is very much cheap, I think Rs. 10 , for 6 Veg momo, and Rs. 15 for 6 Chicken momo.
Momo is our tibetan traditional food!
