  • A healthy Patra-Ni-Machchi recipe, only with some mustard oil to give flavor. Pomfret wrapped in a tangy marinade and steamed in a banana leaf.


  • 1 fresh pomfret (medium sized)
  • Banana leaves

  • For Garnish:
  • Green chillies
  • Coriander


  1. Mix all the ingredients to make the marinade for the fish.
  2. Coat the fish properly with the marinade mixture. Let it rest for about 10 minutes, so that the flavors assimilate well.

  4. Place it in the steamer and let it steam gently for about 20 - 25 minutes.
  5. Once done garnish with lime wedges, coriander and green chillies.
