Fish Steamed in Banana Leaves Recipe

Ingredients :

750 g firm fish fillets

2 teaspoons salt

1 large lemon

2 medium onions

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped finely

3 cloves garlic

2 fresh green chilies, seeded and chopped

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground fenugreek

1/2 cup fresh grated coconut

2 tablespoons ghee

1 teaspoon garam masala

Salt to taste

Banana leaves


Method :

Wash the fish fillet, dry with paper towels. Rub the fish with salt and set aside. Peel the lemon and remove all the white pith. Cut the lemon in pieces and discard all the seeds. Use a food processor to blend one roughly chopped onion, garlic, ginger, chilies, fresh cilantro, cumin and fenugreek. Blend on high speed until pureed smoothly. Add coconut and blend again. Heat a wok with oil and fry the remaining onions until soft and golden. Add the blended mixture and fry, stirring for a few minutes. Remove from the heat. Add salt to taste and garam masala. Coat each fish fillet with the mixture. Wrap the fish securely in banana leaves and steam over gently simmering water for 30 minutes. Turn the parcel once during steaming. Serve in the leaf parcels with rice.
