Fish Paturi

Fish Paturi

Fish Paturi is one of the many mouth watering fish recipes from Kolkata. Bengalis are known for their preference for fish on their menu. Cooking fish paturi is easy and you can serve it at family gatherings and festive occasions.

Different types of fishes are used for making fish paturi. You can try fish paturi with sea bass, cat fish, salmon, grass carp or halibut. The fish must be cut into small 2X2 inch squares. This is also made on special occasions like Durga puja.



Method to make fish paturi :

Wash and dry the Fish Steak, cut into 8 to 10 pieces, keep aside

In a Blender add Mustard seeds, coconut, greens chillies and a pinch of salt

Make it a smooth paste by adding little water from time to time

Add sugar, turmeric powder and lime juice to it

Add salt as required and finally make a smooth marinade

Dip the Fish pieces into the marinade and rub them with fingers

Leave the marinated Fish for 30 minutes in room temperature or 2 hours in refrigerator

Once the marination is done, now pour in the mustard oil to it and mix it well

Now cut the Banana Leaf into 8 inches square

Take the Banana Leaf in a platter glossy side up, rub little mustard oil to it

Place a piece of Fish at the center and add some marinade on it

Place one green chilli on top of it

Fold the leaf from each side and make it a square parcel

Wrap it with the thread so that it doesn't open while cooking

Wrap rest of the fish pieces and make a parcel for each of them

Now heat water in a steamer

Add the parcels into the steaming rack or basket

Steam the parcels for 10 minutes

Remove from steamer, discard the threads from the parcels

Serve piping hot with steamed rice

Tip: Paturi can also be done instead of steaming, by shallow frying the parcels on a hot Tawa
