And, often when I get Illish maach at home, I am at loss because I am always brimming with ideas about what to make out of those. I have already share Illish Mach Bhaja recipe and Bhapa Illish recipe, here on my blog.

This Illish Macher shorshe jhol recipe is again a big time hit in my kitchen. One, because it is super simple and can be easily wrapped up within 10 minutes flat.

Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Bengali
Keyword: Bengali Fish Recipes, Illish Maach Recipes
Servings: 2 People
Ingredients
  • 4 Illish Maach
  • 4 tbsp Mustard Oil
  • 1 tbsp Mustard Powder
  • 1 tbsp Poppy Seed paste
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 2 Green Chilies Slit in halves
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a pan. Add the slit green chilies.

  2. Slightly sear the fish pieces for a minute on each sides. Do not allow them to go brown.

  3. Meanwhile soak rest of the ingredients in 1/2 cup water and pour it over the fish pieces. Allow it to simmer for 8-10 minutes to cook the fish properly.

  4. Once done, serve it with a drizzle of mustard oil and a dash of lemon juice.

Recipe Notes

While using the Green Chilies, use your discretion as per your take on heat.

Once you put the dish to simmer, note that there is ample amount of water in the pan. As poppy paste has a tendency to stick at the bottom of the dish and burn. Ample amount of water would avoid that.
