Fish paturi aka Macher Paturi is a traditional Bengali recipe in which any white fish fillet (bhetki or swai or basa is preferable) or shrimp or Hilsa is cooked by wrapping in banana leaf. The word 'Paturi' comes from the Bengali word Pata or Leaf. Almost any Bengali function or good old Bengali restaurant is incomplete without Paturi. You can either steam them or fry them. But I like the fried version. You will need the freshest quality of fish for this recipe. Do try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out for you.
