So here goes the recipe......
1.1 pomfret( I used 1-1.5lb size)
2.2 Pinch of Turmeric
3.2 tb sp Black mustard powder
4.1 tbsp white mustard powder(if you don't have white then you can just use black mustard powder,traditionally they use mustard paste.But I replaced it with powder as it is easy to get and use here in Toronto)
5.2 tb sp fresh grated coconut
6.4 green chillies(or as hot as you want)
8.1 tsp mustard oil(Mustard oil has a distinct flavour which goes very well in this dish),if you don't have you can manage with vegetable oil too.
1.Wash the fish well and rub salt and turmeric.keep it aside for 30 minutes.
2.In a blender blend the coconut,green chillies,both types of mustard powders with very little water.So that the texture remains like a paste(not very runny)
3.Spread the fish in a box(I used the round baking dish) in a single layer.
4.Mix a pinch of turmeric in the coconut,mustard,chilly paste and pour over the fish so that the fish is coated well with the paste.
5.Pour 1 tsp of mustard oil on the fish and paste.
6.Now fill the pressure cooker with 1.5 inch depth water(make sure your fish box is taller than water level) and place the fish box inside the cooker.
7.Close the cooker with the whistle on top and cook for 2-3 whistles which may take around 30-35 minutes.
