still cannot make out why the moment I do a few posts, I have to take a break ...
that are turning longer by the time ...
with health related issues.
... i.e. cook and share it with you all.
I am thinking of at least hanging a string of nimbu mirchi from my nose when
I sit down to make a post. :-)
And was waiting for a taste of this year's Ilish/Hilsa.
Since I have been traveling a lot in the recent past, I did not get the chance of having ilish
even once this season.
So when my fishwala called, I rushed and bought a good 1.5 kg 'Kalkatta ka Ilish'.
Ilsih from Calcutta means Ganga's Ilsih ...
which is said to be tastier than the other varieties.
Not too small ... too small sized Ilish has too many bones ... thin as threads ... and very difficult to deal with.
Not too big ... too big and with too much roe fish does not taste as good.
I still had a few pieces and part head left.
Wanted something different, so called out to my FB friends for a recipe.
after coming to know of the few vegetables I had in my fridge.
And I kept track of all the recipes.
Just a variation in the tempering and you will get a wonderful dish!
It was so good I did not need anything else to go with my plate of steaming hot rice!
I believe this will make a wonderful dish on the side if you are planning
a traditional Bengali meal or feast.
Do check if there is enough moisture or add a little water if needed.
