  • Mustard paste 1 tablespoon
  • Nigella seeds 1 teaspoon
  • Red chillipowder 1teaspoon
  • Three slit green chillies
  • Mustard oil 1/3 of a cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Water 1.5 cup

How to make Kancha Ilisher Jhal (Spicy Raw Hilsa in Mustard Sauce)

  1. Heat the mustard oil in a wok and temper with nigella seeds and a pinch of turmeric powder.
  2. After a minute add the thin paste of mustard paste and saute for 30 seconds.
  3. Now add the raw fish, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  4. Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, mix well and after another minute add the water.
  5. Add the slit green chillies and wait for a boil at a high flame.
  6. When it starts to boil, reduce the flame, add salt & cover the wok with a lid for 5 minutes.
  7. When the gravy thickens and the desired consistency comes, switch off the flame and serve the dish.

My Tip:

The fish must not be overcooked and mustard paste should not be sauted for more than a minute, otherwise it will turn bitter.
