A flavorful lemon mustard cooked with onions and jalapenos is the perfect dish for cold winter nights. We recommend pairing it with a chilled Reisling.

Lemon is a favorite flavor for fish and tastes great mixed with sugar and water on a hot day. It has also long been a staple of Indian cuisine. The very first cultivated lemon tree is believed to have been grown in Assam, India. There are records of lemons being consumed all the way back in the tenth century. Today, we like lemon in all kinds of things, but the Calcutta Lemon Mustard Fish Curry below is definitely at the top of the list.

Award-winning actor Anthony Hopkins enjoyed this dish the last time he visited New Delhi Restaurant and now you can too!

Calcutta Lemon Mustard Curry


This blend is created in honor of Maharani of Kutch Behar (1887) who encouraged the emancipation of women in Bengal. Her favorite dish was “Steamed Lemon Mustard Fish Curry”.

Spice Ingredients

Brown Mustard, Lemon juice powder, Jalapeno powder, Turmeric powder, Coriander powder, Salt, Cardamom powder, Paprika powder, Garlic powder, Cumin powder, Fenugreek powder, Ginger powder, Red Chili powder, Cinnamon powder, Clove powder, Nutmeg powder, and Mace powder.

Lemon Branches

The average lemon has about three tablespoons of juice in it, which is easier to extract if the lemon is at room temperature. Lemon juice is also a great meat tenderizer and can be used to neutralize odors. It has lots of Vitamin C and is thought to be helpful in reducing cancer. The scent of lemon essential oil has been found to reduce stress and a drop of lemon juice in a cup of hot water is thought to help the liver. No matter what you need it for, keep plenty of lemons handy.
