Patra Ni Machhi

For all living in Mumbai, this may sound familiar, but for all my Non-Mumbaiite friends, Patra Ni Machhi is a steamed fish quoted with Green Chutney. You can serve this just as a Starter or even as a Side Dish.

Lets begin the show!

This recipe serves 4

Ingredients :

  • 4 Pomphrets ideally (or any other fish available) or small fillets of basa fish (if serving as starters)
  • 30 gms Mint, Corriander

  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 2 tblsp Dahi
  • Some Banana Leaves and thread

Preparation :

Preparing Time : 10 minutes

Cooking Time : 10-15 minutes

  • Make a Chutney Paste out of all ingredients mentioned above
  • The consistency of the paste should not be liquid
  • Take the fish and place it on a plate
  • Quote the fish properly from all sides back and forth
  • Now take a banana leaf and place the fish on it
  • Wrap the fish with banana leaf and tie it up with a thread lightly so that it does not open up

Preferably serve it Hot directly from the steamer!
