Delicious Masala Pomfret Ready In A Jiffy!
Make deep slits on either side of the pomfret. Apply salt, chilli powder and turmeric powder all over the fish and leave it to marinate for 15 minutes. Prepare a thick paste of two spoons of oil, garlic paste, red chilli paste, coriander paste, clove powder and a little salt. Use this as a second marinade for the fish and leave it aside for another fifteen minutes.
Heat a non-stick pan. Roll each pomfret in rice flour and place it on the pan. Drizzle a little oil all around the fish and cook it on one side for at least two minutes. Flip it when the side has turned golden brown and drizzle some more oil. Once both the sides are evenly cooked, remove it from the flame. Sprinkle some fresh coriander and serve hot! Devour soft, melt-in-your-mouth masala pomfret.
Bonus Tip: You could also use rawa or suji if rice flour is unavailable.
