So let me leave you with these 2 yummilicious recipes
Sarsoon Maach – Mustard Fish Curry I used Salmon Fish fillets – 2 fillets cut in 4 pieces. Marinate them in salt, turmeric and dry mustard powder and leave them for about 30 mins. In a bowl take about 3 spoons of mustard powder and add equal quantity of water to make a thick paste. Add about 2 spoons of thick yogurt to this paste and leave aside. Now in a pan add cooking oil (mustard oil is preferred). When the oil is hot add black mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add dried red chilies to this. And then add grated garlic (4-5 pods) and finely chopped onions (2 medium sized). Cook this golden brown and then add 1 tomato(chopped). Leave this to simmer a bit and then add 1 tea spoon of coriander powder, a little red chili powder (as much as you like) and salt. And then add the paste of mustard powder and yogurt to this. Let is cook for a while and then add the marinated fish pieces. Add 1 cup water and let the gravy come to boil and cook it on slow flame for 10 mins. Tra la la, your fish curry is ready!
Chicken with yogurt or as Aman calls it “Pyaza Dahi Chicken” Slice 2 large onions and fry them in oil till golden brown. Take them out from the oil and keep them aside to become cooler. Now in a pan take some oil and add garlic and ginger paste (about 2 spoons) and then add 1 spoon coriander powder, ½ spoon turmeric powder. ½ spoon red chili powder and ½ spoon garam masala and quickly add about 1/4thcup of water. Once the spices are cooked and the oil can be seen, add boneless chicken breasts (cut in small cubes.) Now let this cook. Coming back to the fried onions, put them in a blender and add about 2 big spoons of yogurt and blend them together to make a smooth puree. This mixture is then added to the chicken which by now is almost half cooked. Let chicken properly get cooked in this mixture. Cover the pan and leave it for about 10-12 mins to cook on low flame. Add a bit of water and bring it to boil. And lo, behold, its ready to be served!
