Ingredients to make Koi Macher Paturi (Climbing Perch Wrap)

  • Koi Mach - 4
  • Tender Lau Leaves (bottle gourd leaves) - 8 (2 Big leaves per fish)
  • Fresh jeera paste (cumin paste) - 4 tbsp
  • Green chilli - 4 (withing the paturi) + 1 (in jeera paste)
  • turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • sugar to taste
  • mustard oil - 3 tsp

How to make Koi Macher Paturi (Climbing Perch Wrap)

  1. Clean the fish. Make two 2" thin cuts into each side of the fish. This is for the spices to enter into the fish properly.
  2. Marinate the fish with turmeric, salt and sugar for 10 minutes.
  3. Wash the leaves and cut from nodes. Make a uniform paste of jeera and 1 green chillies.
  4. Smear the jeera paste on the fishes uniformly. Adjust the salt. Keep it for about 5mins. Drizzle the mustard oil on the fish and mix well.
  5. Take 2 leaves at a time and place one on the other in opposite direction ( Suppose the first leaf tip faces you so when you place the next one it should face away from you).
  6. Place the fish in the middle along with some spice paste.
  7. Place a green chilli in the middle of the fish. Wrap the fish well so that no part remains exposed. Tie it well with a thread. Prepare the other fishes in the same way.
  8. This preparation is served with rice so wash and clean the rice and place it in the cooker. Add necessary water for the rice to get cooked. Place the wrapped fishes one by one on the rice bed.
  9. Close the lid and pressure cook for two whistles or as required for the rice to get cooked properly.
  10. Once the rice is done, let the steam sit inside the cooker for a while for 5 minutes and then open the lid. As soon as you open the lid you will be greeted with the soft aroma of Jeera.
  11. In a serving dish, serve the fish paturis( still wrapped) over a small bed of the flavoury rice. When you eat it you need to open the knot and take out the fish from the leaf.
