POMFRET IN GREEN MASALA

Fish fry makes me crazy. It has almost become my favourite dish .Whenever I prepare fish fry for lunch or dinner, I have it on the spot hot hot soon after the fry. Cannot wait to have it along with another food. Now that I said, I cannot wait, you can notice my pic below that I have shown 2 marinated fish, but on serving plate therez only one. Thats because when I finished my first fish fry, my hubby and my kiddo had a small piece of bite and within no minute, we three had almost finished. Thank god that I was able to take a snap of the second fish and that too without any garnishing :) hehe. This is somthing different type rather than our normal masala and its must to try. Its just a flavourful blend and the fresh lime juice and mint leaves are the best compliment to the fish fry. Here goes my recipe..


INGREDIENTS.

1 Pomfret.

1 tbs Ginger garlic paste.

4 tbs Grated Coconut.

1 Green chilli.

4 strands of Corinander leaves.

3 strands of Mint leaves

1/2 tsp Turmeric powder.

1 tbsp Lime juice.

Oil for shallow fry.

Salt and pepper to taste.

METHOD.

Wash and clean the fish using vinegar water. This reduces the fishy smell. Patch it dry using tissue towel. Spinkle inside and outside salt and pepper and keep it aside.


Grind the rest of the ingredients into the mixer into fine paste. Use very less water to make a paste.

Marinate the grounded masala on fish and let it rest atleast for 1 hour.


Heat oil in a pan. Fry the fish on both side for about 3 to 4 min or until its cooked.

Squeeze fresh lime juice on the top and serve hot.


Enjoy!!
