This one came out very well.

  2. Cloves – 10
  3. Black Cardamom – 2
  4. Mint Chutney – 3 Tablespoons

And now this is what I did:

  1. Washed fish in Salt and Turmeric Powder
  2. Marinated fish (Salt, Black Pepper, Garlic Paste, Ginger Paste, lemon Juice)
  3. Added Mint Chutney, Cloves, Carom Seeds, Black Cardamom and one Green Chili to Poaching Liquor and took it to boiling stage

  6. Took the fillets out and had them with a side of veggies

Done and enjoyed.

The one I cooked for you was a different recipe. It was poached in “Fish Stock” itself and to cater to “Bengali Pallet” I made the soup strong on Mustard. Thanks for coming over.
