- 1 kg hilsa (Greater the size, better the taste)
100 gm mustard seed
7-10 garlic clove
10 gm ginger
Salt as required
3-4 long green chillies
50 ml mustard oil
- Cut the fish in desired pieces and set it aside.
Grind mustard seeds along with garlic, ginger and salt to a fine paste.
Add some water and raw mustard oil to it.
Take a small saucepan -- just enough to fit in your pressure cooker -- and grease the container with raw mustard oil.
Put a layer of mustard paste at the base of the container and place the hilsa pieces on it.
Coat all the pieces thoroughly with the rest of the mustard paste.
Slice the long green chillies length wise and place it over the pieces face down. Pour 1-2 ml raw mustard oil and cover the container.
Pour some water in the pressure cooker ensuring that half the container is under water.
If the container floats, put a heavy weight on the lid of the container to keep it in place.
Shut the pressure cooker and cook up to one whistle.
Your dish is now ready to eat.
