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).

  • 8 Fish, hilsa or any firm white river fish fillets

  • 2 Green chilies
  • 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.
  • Place the round dish with the fish fillets in the center of the rice, cover and cook on very low heat for another 5-6 minutes or until the rice is done.
