1 green chilli
3 big tomatoes chopped fine
soak and then grind-1 tablespoon of khus khus(poppy seeds)+1 1/2 tsps of mustard seeds
1 tsp nigella seeds
mustard oil-as required
1.Marinate the fish in a little salt+turmeric pdr+chilli pdr,at least for half an hour.
2.Heat mustard oil in a wok/kadhai.....deep fry the marinated pcs.Drain on an absorbent towel.
3.In another wok/kadhai,add about a tablespoon of mustard oil...once it heats up..addthe nigella seeds,the garlic and green chilli.....fry for a few mins..then add the chopped tomatoes.now add the spices(which we've made a paste of in water).cook this till you see oil leaving the masala.(about 7 mins or so).Add 1 cup of water,let it come to a boil.
4.Once the gravy has bubbled away,add the khus khus-mustard seeds paste.I add the cilantro at this stage too,reserving a little for the garnish.Taste the seasoning.
5.Add the fried fish to this.Serve hot with plain bolied rice.Its yum!I just realised something....have you noticed how bengali girls are so beautiful...its because they eat fish...all those omega 3's working!
