1
Soak 50 grams of mustard seeds in water for 30 minutes and then grind it into a fine paste.
2
Marinate 500 grams of Hilsa fish pieces with 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and salt as per taste. Keep it aside for 15 minutes.
3
Heat 2 tablespoons of mustard oil in a pan until it is smoking hot. Reduce the flame and add 2 slit green chillies and the marinated fish pieces. Fry the fish on both sides until it turns golden brown. Remove the fish from the pan and keep it aside.
4
In the same pan, add 1 teaspoon of nigella seeds and let it splutter. Then add the mustard paste, 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, salt as per taste and 1 cup of water. Stir well and bring it to a boil.
5
Once the gravy starts boiling, add the fried fish pieces and cover the pan. Let it cook on a low flame for about 10 minutes.
6
After 10 minutes, remove the lid and check if the fish is cooked properly. If it is, turn off the flame and add 1 tablespoon of raw mustard oil on top for an extra punch.
7
Your Shorshe Ilish is ready to be served. Enjoy it with hot steamed rice.
