Steaming is one of the healthiest options in cooking and various steamed recipes made with rice, veggies, momos, fish, paneer, chicken, tofu and many more have been cherished by people worldwide. If you are on an oil-free diet, having steamed food is the best option. This is one of my experimental recipes but it turned out pretty well.
- 300 gms of boneless fish (I used basa)
- 1 tbsp of grated carrot
- 1 tbsp of finely chopped coriander or any fresh herb of your choice
- 1 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Fresh green or red chillies as per your requirement
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Clean the fish, wash and pat it dry with a kitchen towel multiple times to ensure that the fish is nice and dry.
- Take fish, lemon juice and green chillies in a mincer jar or a blender.
- It takes only one second. Just turn it on and turn it off immediately.
- Take out the fish mixture in a bowl and add all the remaining ingredients to it. Mix well.
- Put a steamer with water in the base and let it come to a boil.
- Empty the fish mixture into a rectangular fudge mould or any vessel of your choice.
- Level it with the back of a knife to get a smooth surface.
- Put it in the steamer and leave it to steam on medium flame for 15 minutes after which turn off the gas and let it rest for five minutes.
- Cut into squares and serve hot with tangy kasundi (Bengali mustard sauce).
- This can be paired with a thick and creamy soup.
- Cut into small squares and place in canapes for parties, as starters.
