About Doi Ilish (HIlsa Fish in Yoghurt Gravy - Bengali Cuisine) Recipe

Hilsa, being the most favourite fish among most of the Bengalis, I would like to share a traditional recipe where it is cooked in a yoghurt based gravy. Very simple and easy to cook, this dish requires very few ingredients and can be prepared in a jiffy. It is best enjoyed with hot steamed rice.
