Bengali Pomfret Curry

Ingredients:

  • 4 pomfret
  • 1 roughly chopped medium onion
  • 1 roughly chopped medium tomato
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3-4 green chilis
  • ½ tsp nigella seeds
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
  • ½ cumin powder
  • ½ tsp sugar or any preferred sweetener
  • Salt
  • 3-4 tbsp mustard oil, or any preferred one
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

Instructions:

  1. Marinate the fish with salt a ½ tsp of turmeric powder. Keep it aside for the meantime.
  2. Make a coarse paste of onion, tomato, and garlic. Keep it aside.
  3. Put 2 tbsp of oil in a pan over medium heat. Then, when already hot, add the fish.

  5. Add the oil to the same pan and taste with nigella seeds and slit green chilis.
  6. When they start to splatter, add the onion-tomato paste and saute over medium heat. Stir for 4-5 minutes until the water is evaporated and the oil is now seeping through the masala.
  7. Add the turmeric powder, cumin powder, chilli powder, and salt in it along with 2 tbsp of water. Mix it well. 
  8. Continue cooking over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until you see the oil seeping through the masala.

  10. Add the fish onto that pan. Slowly slip it in along with some coriander leaves.
  11. Simmer for another 3-4 minutes.
  12. When done, take it out and place it on a plate or whatever you choose.
