Aam Shorshe Ilish (Fish in Raw Mango-Mustard Gravy - Bengali Style)


          This is a traditional Bengali style fish in mustard gravy, but with a difference. Raw mango paste is added to it for a bit of a tang. It simply tastes divine. In this recipe I have used Hilsa fish but you can try with any other fish too, like Rohu, Tilapia, Pomfret, etc. Enjoy this delicacy with just plain steamed rice. So check for a step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.





  • 2-3 fish pieces (I have used Ilish variety)
  • 2-3 tbsp. mustard oil
  • 1/2 tsp. nigella seeds (kalonji)
  • 1 dry red chili, broken into half
  • 2-3 tbsp. raw mango paste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 2 tbsp. mustard paste
  • salt to taste
  • 1 & 1/2 cups water
  • 3-4 green chilies
  • 1-2 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. raw mustard oil





          Marinate the fish with a pinch of salt and turmeric powder for 10 minutes. Heat oil in a pan and fry the fish slightly. Drain and keep aside.

          Temper the same oil with nigella seeds and dry red chili. Saute for a few seconds and then add the mango paste and turmeric powder.

          Saute till the oil separates. Add the mustard paste and salt. Continue to fry again for few seconds more. Add the water and bring it to a boil.

          Drop in the fried fish and green chilies. Simmer on a medium flame for 2-3 minutes. When done, add the coriander leaves and raw mustard oil and serve with plain steamed rice.
