Fish salad : Assamese style

I made this simple fish salad recipe from small fish cooked in banana leaf.  I grow up eating small fish cooked in banana leaf. My mother often used to cook small fish in banana leaf then she makes pitika (mashed) of those fish pieces. Assamese people used to cook many recipes in banana leaf from ages. Turmeric leaf can also be used in-stead of banana leaf in making these recipes.  The procedure of cooking small fish in banana leaf or turmeric leaf are the same.  To know about the procedure of making Small fish in banana leaf /turmeric leaf >click here
