Doi posto begun ilish. A quick Bengali bespoke hilsa fish curry recipe post with no life story to go with it
|Doi posto begun ilish|
A Bengali mother's kitchen inspired lunch in Mumbai
Doi posto ilish today with some of the remaining ilish (hilsa) that I’d bought from Mumbai's Khar station fish market a couple of weeks back and which was waiting patiently for me in the deep fridge. Poonam, whom I bought it from, said it is ‘Howrah ilish.’ This means it came from Kolkata. Could be from the Irrawaddy for all you know and was a lovely 1.4 kilo one.
