Mustard and Lati Recipe-
You must fry the blackberries in mustard oil first. Reduce the oven heat and stir in the crushed garlic and onion to reduce the scent of fried black cumin. You must add the amount of salt and the pre-steamed lati and 5-6 green chillies when it is a little fried. It should be taken down after 2-3 minutes of stirring, if the scent comes out.
Lati and Shrimp –
In the pan, put oil. Add the salted shrimp when the oil is hot. Stir for 1 minute and sprinkle over the top with a pinch of turmeric powder. Take that down. For a very short time, cook the shrimp. In that grease, grate the onion and keep stirring. Let it be lightly fried with the onion. Stir all the cumin seeds in. Apply a little yellow to the onion if it is golden in hue.
Keep combining one by one with ginger paste, garlic paste and onion paste now. Connect the salt, chilli powder, cilantro powder, and a little more turmeric powder and shake. Give yourself a little bath. Stir in the slices of raw chili. Stir it with the washed kachu when the water is dry. A little water is applied and sealed with a lid. Take some time with water little by little in this way.
Put 1 cup of water in it when the lati is almost cooked. Cover for 2 minutes and simmer. See the water boiling hot and open the lid. Stir the shrimps into the pre-fried ones. There’s no need to place a lid on it. Take it down when the water is dry and smeared. If you have coriander leaves, scatter them on top, and they will taste different. Serve the ‘Lati Shrimp’ with hot rice.
Kachur Lati with Hilsa Head –
Clean and break the stalks into 3 inch pieces. In a kettle, boil 1 liter of water and place the stalks in it and boil it for 2-3 minutes, then add water. Whip together the onion and green chillies. Wash the head of the fish. Apply the salt to 4 teaspoons. In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and fry the fish lightly. In a pan, heat the remaining oil and add the onion and chili paste, turmeric, cilantro powder and cumin powder. Peel and grate the squash and squeeze the juice. Now cover the water with 1/2 cup and wait until the water dries. Then, with 1 more cup of water, boil it. When it boils, shake the fish’s head with caution and cover it. In reality, turn off the oven when the broth thickens and the oil rises to the top. With hot rice, serve.
Pulses and hot washed rice with lati,
Steam and apply water to the leaves. For 15 minutes, wash the pulses and keep them soaked. Now, with the raw chilli and salt, cook the garlic and onion. Boil it up, then take it down. With water, it should be removed. 2 cups of hot water should be offered if the spices are well combined. You’ve got to give it if it boils. It should be cooked with boiled pulses and verdant chillies after a while.
