fillets fish (can use any white flesh fish like salmon)
red chili powder
(or according to taste)
tablespoons mustard oil
black mustard seeds
or 1 cup
yellow mustard seeds
, ground to a paste with water. (I use black)
pieces banana leaves, to wrap the fish fillets in
Add the chilli powder, turmeric, salt, sugar, mustard oil and green chillies to the fillets.
Mix well to coat evenly.
(Don't be afraid to use your hands.) Marinate fish for 20-30 mins.
Now add the ground mustard and immediately wrap each fillet with a little extra marinade on top into individual pouches with the banana leaf.
Steam for 20 mins in a steamer.
