A healthy Patra-Ni-Machchi recipe, only with some mustard oil to give flavor. Pomfret wrapped in a tangy marinade and steamed in a banana leaf.
- 1 fresh pomfret (medium sized)
4 Tbsp curd
1/2 Tbsp turmeric
Some chopped garlic
1 1/2 Tbsp mustard oil
1/2 Tbsp salt
Half lemon, juice
Coat the fish properly with the marinade mixture. Let it rest for about 10 minutes, so that the flavors assimilate well.
Wrap the fish nicely in a banana leave and tie it up.
Place it in the steamer and let it steam gently for about 20 – 25 minutes.
Once done garnish with lime wedges, coriander and green chillies.
