  Chopped coriander 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Chopped mint 1 Tablespoon
  Fresh ginger 1 Inch
  Garlic 20 Clove (100 gm)

  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Directions

1. Wash the pomfrets twice, apply salt and set aside.
2. Grind the chutney masala till it is soft and buttery. Use half a cup of water if. necessary.
3. Prepare the banana leaves by removing the centre stalk. You will have twelve pieces now. Take one slice of fish at a time and smother it in the chutney. It should be well coated and then wrap it in one piece of banana leaf into a neat package. Tie with thin white thread. When all the slices are neatly packed take an aluminium tray and grease it with half a cup of oil. Place on a medium flame and arrange the packages on the hot tray. Leave for three minutes, then turn over once. Sprinkle with water and vinegar and cover tightly. Allow to cook over a low flame for 15 minutes, turning over the packages at least once. Serve immediately.
