Ilish Paturi

Make way for Ilish Paturi, a delicacy that combines three of Bengal's greatest loves—the hilsa fish, the banana plant, and mustard. Hilsa fish is coated with a special spice mix that also contains MAGGI® coconut milk powder, before being laid on a banana leaf and steamed. This recipe, even though it looks complex, requires simple ingredients and no special technique.
