Served
Hilsa is missing in photograph though

That would be misti doi and rasgulla, the white thing is rice kheer(we call payesh)

Is the fish also offered in the prayers? Or is it an optional item?

Looks like you got the head and tail of it. . How do you eat the head? and what parts do you discard apart from bones?

Hilsa fish, I understand has tons of bones and tastes muddy. Is it a fresh water fish or is it from the sea?

No its a tradition of offering to a person, on a holy occasion

Its not offered as a prayer, but to the person.

The head is eaten but very selectively(I can send you a delicious recipe with fish head and rice, if you like) The gills and eye is discarded.

Hilsa or Ilish : All the info you will get here. I thing for sure, its the most delicious fish in the whole subcontinent....you will get all the recipe's online. Try the Ilish Bhapa

Yes, in other cultures too.

Please do post the recipe here.

In AP, certain parts of AP actually, fish and heads are cooked with tamarind and jaggery, a similar recipe is followed for goat/sheep head. The heads are usually served to the guest of honor.

On the coastal part of AP, Nellore is famous for it's fish curry:

Muri-ghonto(Rice and Fish Head)

http://www.senskitchen.com/recipes/n...i%20ghonto.htm - modified in my way
Ingredients:
Rui / Katla Fish head - 1 (from a 2-3 kg fish)[I prefer [I prefer Katla]
Atop Chal /Gobindo Bhog(Raw white rice) - 2 tbsp [may use basmati if the variant is not available]. Potatoes – 3(make 4 pieces each); Onion - 1 medium, finely chopped;Ginger - 1 inch, grated; Garlic - 2 cloves, grated; Turmeric - 1/2 tsp; Red Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp; Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp; Green Chillies - 3-4, slit; Bay leaf - 2 small; Garam masalla powder 1/2 tbsp;few cinnamom and cardamom pieces for flavor; Salt - To taste; Ghee - 1 tsp; White Oil - 6 tbsp for frying; Mustard Oil - 3-4 tbsp for cooking.

Preparation:
Cut fish into 2 big half. Add a pinch of salt (for taste), turmeric and chili powder and marinate
Wash rice drain the water and keep aside, to dry[may use a hint of kesar]
Make the masala paste: ginger, garlic, turmeric, chilli powder, and cumin powder, blend in a mixer.


Cooking procedure:
Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a pan. Add rice to oil and fry till the rice becomes brittle, just a minute or two will suffice
Add 3 tbsp. oil, heat and fry potatoes till golden brown. Keep aside.
Deep fry fish head, should turn brown.
Heat freshly taken 3-4 tbsp. mustard oil in a pan.
Add bay leaves, cardamom, and cinnamon and fry for 30 sec in low heat.
Add chopped onions and fry for 4-5 min till onions are soft.
Add masalla paste (prepared above) and rice (the fried one). Fry till oil separates out (usually about 2-3 on medium heat). Sprinkle water, to avoid masalla from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Add 2 cups water, salt and bring to boil. Add fried potatoes and simmer for 10 min without cover.
Add fish head (the fried one). Break gently to spread, don’t make pieces (just press with the wooden turner) simmer on low heat till potatoes and rice is cooked. Add ghee, green chilies and remove from heat.It would look somewhat like this:

Serve with plain rice or you may eat it just like that. Cook & Enjoy and don't forget to post the pics.

PS: the pic is posted to explain the final dish, a random Google search image

Thank you!

I have no clue about the recipe, it was a treat from my son, experimenting his newly acquired (part) skills on us. (photography is all mine, though).

Hollow bread with some stuffing inside it? Looks a bit unusual to see bread made like that.

Edit : Found the recipe here
