This is an adaptation of Shorshe Maach, a traditional Bengali dish of delicate white fish cooked in a creamy coconut-based gravy, flavored with yellow mustard seeds, turmeric and kalonji seeds (also known as black cumin or nigella). Classically, the yellow mustard seeds are ground into a piquant paste, but here, we’re taking a helping hand from bold, punchy dried mustard powder. (Look for the S&B brand or Coleman’s.)
The turmeric and kalonji seeds create magic together in Bengali cuisine. The bright, citrusy notes of the turmeric harmonizing with the subtly bitter, herbaceous flavor of the nigella seeds. And, incidentally, both spices are great for one’s hair!
If you can get your hands on mustard seed oil—another favorite ingredient in Bengali cooking—it adds even more mouthwatering, mustard-y, horseradish-like heat and depth. This dish also works wonders with shrimp!
