Fish in Banana Leaf (Bhetki Paturi)

Ingredients :

1. Slices of fish (Bhetki/Hilsa/Seer)- 4 to 5
2. Mustard powder- 6 to 7 tbs
3. Sugar- 2 1/2 tsp
4. Salt to taste
5. Black pepper powder- 1 1/2 tsp
6. Jeera powder- 1 tbs
7. Red chilly powder-1/2 tsp
8. Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
9. Coriander powder-1 tsp
10. Ajwain- 1/2 tsp
11. Hing powder-1/2 tsp
12. Onion- 1 large
13. Green chilly- 2
14. Mustard oil
15. Banana leaf
16. String

Procedure :

Grind the onion and green chillies roughly. Next mix all the above mentioned masala powder  in a bowl and add a little water and keep it aside for 15 minutes so that the mustard paste does not taste bitter. Now cover one side of the fish piece with the onion- chilly paste and on top of it the mustard paste and place it on a banana leaf (cut according to the size of the fish pieces). Cover the top side of the fish piece with onion and mustard paste and add a little mustard oil to it. Pack the fish with the banana leaf from all side and tie it with the string. Do it with all the other pieces and keep the fish like this for 30 minutes. Next heat 3 to 4 tbs of oil in a flat surface pan and when it is smoking hot, add the fish (covered with a banana leaf) pieces. Fry each side until it turns out to be brown. You can also keep these banana covered fishes in a cooker to get a steamed fish paturi.
