Take a kg of boneless bhetki fish and cut into five medium sized pieces. Wrap the fish in a large banana leaf and cut each piece into 10 rectangular pieces. Put the grated coconut into a bowl. Then make a paste of the mustard seeds and green chillies.

Mix the grated coconut, mustard seed paste, green chilli paste, salt, half a teaspoon of turmeric powder, and two tablespoons of mustard oil in a bowl. Place the banana leaf pieces over a dish, put one tablespoon of the paste on each piece of banana leaf and place one piece of fish on the paste.

Put another tablespoon of paste on the fish so as to cover the fish on both sides with the paste.  Fold the banana leaf to wrap the content from all sides and tie it with a string or toothpick. Repeat this process for all the fish pieces.

Heat a frying pan coated with a little mustard oil and place the wrapped fish pieces on the medium heated charcoal bed and roast for six to seven minutes. Check with the toothpick if it is cooked. Take off the wrapped fish pieces in order to roast the other side.

When all the fish pieces are cooked evenly, put it in a big dish. The baked fish and gravy can be taken out from the banana leaves and served with hot rice.
