I always love your recipe varun but this time u just touched my heart as showing this recipe as a bong feel very proud

Sharanya Mukherjee says:

My favourite fish preparation. But we generally use cotton thread to secure and grease the kolapata with mustard oil. But the way u make it, just absolutely fantastic. Love n best wishes from a Bengali.

Richik Nilay Mukherjee says:

There goes no poppy seed or melon seed in Bengali Ilish Paaturi! How did you come up with that?

Banani Maiti says:

I’m a Bengali housewife, and I’m crazy about hilsa and this is a mind blowing recipe for a Bengali… And the way u served this, I’m already hungry

Pragnya Deb says:

It’s really nice, but we don’t add watermelon seed and bind it with a thread, sometimes we also add little bit mustard oil to the fish at time of packing in banana leaf. This is just another variety.

Kishor Dipnaik says:

Isn’t it supposed to be steamed with less spices?

itsmeb Mitra says:

Chef I’m a big fan of your cooking styles.. but in this recipe when you put the mixture into the banana leaf we Bengali’s put some mustard oil inside the leaf to grease it and after rolling it we use cotton thread to bind it..

Honey Love says:

P MONDAL says:

Love love frm bengal

Suvenjit Pal says:

you did not all right as per our original receipe that needs not required any poppy and melon seeds and also needs more mustard oil in the mixture. you don’t know the word “BHAPA” that means steamed. Actually, “The Bhapa ILISH” is prepared wit the steam of( …..)that is the original bengali receipe .I think you need to learn the receipe of ILISH from a bengali chef.

Aatrayee Basu Roy says:
