Machhi Patia

Made: October 27, 2013
Yield: 4-6 servings
Time to make: 30 minutes.

Despite the number of steps (grate onions, grind seeds for paste, purée tomatoes, steam rice) most can be completed while the fish is marinating.  Add another 15 minutes cooking time and your meal is ready.  Fish fillets steamed in a thick, spicy tomato gravy.  And really good!  I am glad I have leftovers; can’t wait to have this again.
