Doi-Ilish 2(Fish Cooked in Yogurt Sauce)

I have shared a recipe of Doi Ilish few weeks back from a friend's kitchen.
Here is another awesome recipe of the same from another friend cum didi who has excelled in culinary art!
Please try this recipe and you will love it!

• Hilsa: One, cut into steaks of desirable thickness (8-10)
• Curd/ Yogurt: 3 cups, well beaten and creamy
• Ginger paste: 3 heaped tablespoon
• Salt to taste
• Cardamom, Cloves and Cinnamon: 1 ½ tbs
• Whole red chilli: 2-3
• Raisins: ½ cup, soaked in sugar water
• Ghee: 2 tbs
• Salt: to taste
• Caramelized onions (optional)


Marinade the fish in half the yogurt, ginger juice and salt for about an hour.

In a heavy bottomed pan, heat ghee and add the whole hot spices and the whole red chilies to it.

When they crackle, bring down the heat to a minimum and add the fish with the marinade; add the raisins.

Let the steaks simmer on low heat approximately 6-7 minutes on both sides, turn the heat down to the lowest possible degree and add the rest of the yogurt, beaten to a smooth creamy consistency. 

Remove from heat in the next two minutes.

Garnish with caramelized onions if you must.

Serve with Polao or 'Ghee Bhaat' !
