Hilsa Mouli

Hilsa Mouli is a main course delicacy, which can accompany rice or pulao. A medium spicy dish, which would appeal to you if you like mutton rezala for that matter.
I personally used to hate fish, Hilsa in particular, but this dish has changed my opinion about fish !

Hilsa- 4-6 pieces
Chopped ginger- 1 tsp
Green chilli paste 3 tsp
Cumin powder- 1/2 tsp
Tarmaric powder - 1/2 tsp
Coconut milk (thick) - 1 cup
Mustard oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - as per taste
Mustard (black) paste - 2 tbsp
Fresh cream - 2 tsp

Heat oil & fry the hilsa pieces for 5 mins.
Remove the pieces from oil before they turn golden.
Add all the ingredients into the same oil except coconut milk.
Saute till oil leaves the side.
Dilute 1/2  cup of coconut milk with 1 cup of water.
Now add fried hilsa pieces & cook for 10 min.
Close the lid.
Add rest 1/2 cup of coconut milk.
Cook for 2 mins.
Add 2 tsp fresh cream.
Cook for 5 mins.
serve it.
