My husband made this amazing fish fry this Sunday, the masala was so eye catching as you can see that in the pic below. Every time I see this pic my mouth starts watering. Its a sallow fry fish a bit unhealthier version than my steam fish but I must confess I loved the fried one a bit more then my Patra ni Machi version. I think what they say about fried stuff is true they are all comfort food. The lemony and chili flavor in this dish keeps lingering in your mouth for a long time. I would suggest to marinade the fish in the masala for 5 to 6 hrs.
So here goes the recipe..
10 to 15 garlic cloves.
3 dried red chilli
Turmeric powder half a pinch
Small piece of ginger.
Whole black pepper corns
1cup of corainder and mint leaves.
salt to taste
2 spoon wheat flour
1 spoon semolina (rava)
Mix all the ingredients in a grinder with half a spoon salt. Leave some garlic with the skin intact and sallow fry it.
Make 3 slits on both sides of the pomfret so that the masala goes deep inside.
Coat the fish in this thick masala on both the sides. Take some wheat flour add 2 spoon semolina in it. Coat the flour on both the sides of the fish.
Sallow fry the fish from both the sides until the later turns crispy.
Roasted garlic are the amazing combination with fried fish also try it with onions with a t spoon of vinegar on it.
