Ilish Bhat or Ilish Bhaturi, is a delicious rich dish that is cooked in special occasions, especially during the rainy season when the Hilsa fish is widely available. It is delicious by itself, but can be also eaten with begun (eggplant) or potol (pointed gourd) bhaji and achar (pickles).

  • 1 tbsp. / 15 ml Mustard oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Rub the turmeric powder and salt on the fish and keep aside for 0 minutes. Then rub the mustard paste and lay the fish out in a round dish with a tight fitting lid so that it can be put in the pan where the rice is being boiled for cooking.
  • Bring 4 cups of water to the boil and add the rice. Bring back to the boil and then lower heat and cook covered until the rice is half cooked.
