I think quiet a number of times you have tested fish in green sauce but I bet that every time it taste different at least this is something what happen to me very often. When ever people suggest me fish in green sauce I wait for some surprise in the color green. A week back I visited one of my cousin sister house and she cooked this delicious easy quick to make fish in green sauce in just a few minutes and we relish it with steamed rice. I came back home a cooked it just to see whether she kept some thing secret or not but no it taste too delicious . So I thought yes I can share this recipe with my friends. Have a look and cook I am sure you will like the taste of fish in green sauce.
But one ingredient is unique in this recipe and that is Nigella sativa seed popularly known in my area as kalonji seeds. Nigella sativa seed is variously called fennel flower, nutmeg flower, Roman coriander, blackseed, black caraway, or black onion seed. For your convenience I have given the picture in inset, don’t mistake it with black sesame seed. Both are not same.

Fish fillet 2
Nigella sativa seed ½ tsp
White refined
/mustard oil 1½ tbsp
Garlic paste 2 tsp
Cilantro paste ¼ cup
Green chilly paste ½ tsp or according to taste
Tomato puree ½ cup
Sugar 2 pinch
Salt according to taste
Water ¼ cup


First put on the flame and place a pan on it then add oil. Heat oil and then add nigella sativa seed then add the garlic paste stir then add tomato puree, salt sugar cilantro and green chilly paste stir for a minute and half the add fish in it . Coat the fish well in the mixture and then add water in it. Cover the pan with lid and cook it for 5 to 6 minutes or until the fish is cooked. Your fish in green sauce is ready to serve . Serve it with steamed rice or bread . I hope you will like it.
