About Aam Shorshe Ilish - Bengali style Recipe

This is a traditional Bengali style fish in mustard gravy, but with a difference. Raw mango paste is added to it for a bit of a tang. It simply tastes divine. In this recipe I have used Hilsa fish but you can try with any other fish too, like Rohu, Tilapia, Pomfret, etc. Enjoy this delicacy with just plain steamed rice.
