To make

Thick, fleshy fish like mahimahi go best with this doi maach recipe. Garnish the Bengali fish curry with fresh cilantro and serve with basmati rice or curd rice for a full Indian meal.
To make the spice mix, combine the first 6 ingredients in a spice grinder; grind until finely ground.To prepare the fish, combine the mahimahi, turmeric, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl; mix well. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the fish; cook for 5 minutes or until the fish is lightly browned and flakes easily when tested with a fork (do not overcook). Remove from the mold. Repeat with the remaining fish and oil.To make the sauce, add the onion to the pan; simmer for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the ginger, garlic, and bay leaf; simmer for 2 minutes. Add the ground spice mixture; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the water, 1 teaspoon of salt and sugar. Remove the pan from the heat; gradually add the yogurt. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Put the fish and the accumulated juice in the pan. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes or just until tender. Discard the bay leaf.
