Fish Paturi

This is a oriya/bengali dish where fish fillets or fish steaks are marinated with mustard paste and steamed or Fried. Tastes absolutely refreshing with Steam rice


6 piece of medium size fish fillets or fish steaks
1 big banana leaf cut into 6 pieces, big enough to cover fish from all sides

For the marination:

1 tbsp mustard oil
1/2 grated coconut
2 tbsp mustard seeds
salt to taste
1 tsp sugar
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp turmeric powder
few drops of water
5-6 green chilies chopped

6 whole green chilies
1 tbsp refined oil

Grind everything for the marination into a fine paste.
Take each banana leaf. Place some marination and spread well. Now place a fish fillet and put little marination again so that fish is covererd from all sides.
Place one whole green chili and wrap gently from all sides.
Use toothpicks to cover from sides. You can use thread but it was cutting my banan leaves intead and the masala paste was coming out.

Heat a big tawa. Add 1 tbsp refined oil. Add the banana leaf wraps and cook on low flame from all sides till done.You can cover the pan with lid to fasten the cooking process.

Serve hot with Daalma and Hot Steaming Rice.
