Add all ingredients (except the banana leaves, of course) together and mix well. Thin out the rib running through the center of the banana leaf by slicing so that the leaf can rest flat on the frying pan.
Pre heat frying pan. Lay two leaves on the frying pan. Place fish-mix on the leaf. Place one leaf on top of the mix to cover the entire mix. Place lid on the frying pan. Cook on low flame for about 10 mins.
Remove cover. Place a large plate on top of the pan, and turn the pan upside down real fast, so that the contents of the pan are now transferred to the plate upside down.
Now there are two leaves on top of the mix, and one at the bottom. The topmost leaf will have burnt off considerably. Remove it. Place a fresh banana leaf on the pan. Transfer the entire content carefully from the plate to the pan. Replace lid and cook under low flame for about 10 mins.
Your Steamed Fish in Banana leaf is now ready. Serve hot with any form of rice, viz., fried rice, jeera rice, pulao, etc.
