steam cooked fish

Steamed fish cuisines like this one are made without any oil. It is sort of curing / pickling process, hence fish can be stored for couple of days. In old times when there were no refrigerators people who had no daily fish market nearby, especially from the inner parts of Kokan, developed these recipes so they can enjoy their fish without having to go out to the market every other day.
