ABOUT Hilsha Fish With Curd and Mustard paste RECIPE

Hilsha fish, regarded as the king of fish is one of the most sought after fish due to its unique flavor and rare availability. And when the star ingredient is so bold in flavours, I always believe in keeping it simple, ortherwise the flavors get muddled with the added condiments. Heres one simple dish with bare minimum ingredients, and very less cooking time
