The Recipe of Special Silver Pomfret Fish fry:
Quantity of fish: 9 small silver pomfrets
Silver pomfret fish is scaleless thus this fish is extremely easy to clean.
- Marinate the silver pomfret fish in: Juice of a small lemon, smidgen of salt – according to preference of flavour, ¼ to ½ tsp. of turmeric powder, 1 full tsp. of sambhar masala – a non-pungent spice mix,
- Marinate the fish for at least 10 minutes in the marinade,
- Coat the marinated fish with the mixture of wheat flour & semolina before frying the fish in adequate quantity of warm, any mild-flavour vegetable oil – preferably rice bran oil as this oil is less viscous; shallow-fry the fish for less than 5 minutes in medium to low heat, until the outer part of the fish turn crisp in texture.
The subtle flavour of sliver pomfret fish blends splendidly with the elegant-spicy flavour of sambhar masala.
