NARKOLER DUDH DIYE ILISH MACH (HILSA FISH IN COCONUT MILK) & KNOW YOUR KOLKATA FOOD BLOGGER KAMALIKA CHAKRABORTY


Today I am going to post this recipe to Kolkata Food Blogger's event - "Know Your Kolkata Food Bloggers". It is my immense pleasure to introduce our lovely friend, Kamalika Chakraborty. 'Kolkata Food Bloggers' was the brainchild and created by Kamalika Chakraborty of Silence Sings. She is a passionate home maker, a great cook, designer, amazing baker and has her own company - IKa's Cakes & Chocolates. Other than that, she runs jewellery business too. It is her passion to make a bond within bunches of food bloggers who are from Kolkata and form a group. We exchange our experiences with each other, having lots of fun, reviewing restro and doing different activities.

First time, I met her at our group's first bloggers meet. I was too excited before meeting these bunches of co-blogger friends. Today, we are the proud members of Kolkata Food Blogger's and the credit goes to her only. She is very co-operative, creative in nature, genuine, friendly and a very intelligent person. According to this event, this week we have to choose one of her yummilicious recipes and post it on our respective spaces. And I choosen one of her delightful Hilsa Fish dish for today. Lets come to the recipe...

INGREDIENTS:
4 Blocks Hilsa Fish (illish mach)
200 ml Coconut Milk
1 Medium Onion
2 Bay Leaves
1" Cinnamon, 2 Pods of Cardamoms, 2 Cloves
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Kashmiri Red Chili Powder
4 Green chilies
1 tbsp Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves / Cilantro
Salt to taste
3 tbsp Mustard Oil
1/2 tsp Clarified Butter (ghee)

METHOD:
Wash hilsa pieces nicely and make those pat dry. Marinate fish with little turmeric and salt. Set aside for 15-20 minutes. Grind or grate onion with 2 green chilies. Keep it aside.

Heat oil in a wok / pan. Shallow fry the fish and reserve.

In the same oil, add cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms and bay leaves. Wait to splutter. Add onion, fry for 3-4 minutes, till onion turns brown.

Add coconut milk, turmeric powder, kashmiri red chili powder and salt.

When it starts to boil, pour 1/2 cup warm water in it. Let it boil for a minute or two. Add fried fish in it. Boil till as much thick consistency you want. Before taking off from heat, add remaining green chillies (cut in slits), coriander leaves and clarified butter. Serve warm with steamed rice or pulao.
Enjoy this scrumptious Hilsa dish...:)
