Bhetki Maacher Pulao / Bhetki Fish Pulao


Made this home style Bhetki Pulao which is very quick and easy to cook. This can be made with any boneless fish left in your freezer. 
Ingredients 
500 grams of Bhetki fish boneless cut into small chunks 
1 1/2 cup Basmati Rice washed and  soaked 
1 Big size Onion sliced 
1 tbsp Ginger and Garlic Paste
2 Green Chillies cut lengthwise 
Few Coriander leaves chopped 
2 Bay leaves 
2 Cloves 
2 Green Cardamoms 
1 small stick Cinnamon 
5 to 6 Pepper Corns
1/2 cup Whisked Curd 
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp Chilli powder 
1/2 tsp Garam Masala powder
1 tsp Cumin powder 
1 tsp Sugar
Salt to taste
3 tbsp Ghee 



Method 
Take a pot. Add ghee, let it heat up. Add the cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, pepper corns and bay leaves. Let it crackle. Add the sliced onion and sauté till the onions are translucent. Add the ginger - garlic paste. Continue to sauté for a minute more. Add the curd, salt, sugar, turmeric powder, chilli powder, cumin power and garam masala powder. Stir and cook for 2 minutes, add the fish pieces and the green chillies, continue to cook for 2 minutes more. Remove the fish pieces from the masala and keep it aside. Add 4 cups of water. Let it simmer. Add the rice. Let it continue to cook until the rice is almost done. Place the fish on the rice, gently stir the rice, cover and cook for another 2 minutes. Switch off the flame. Open the lid and gently stir it again. Garnish with coriander leaves.  Let the pulao stand for 15 minutes before serving, so that the excess vapour will evaporate. It goes well with salad and  curd.
