Stuffed Fish Fry


This is a delicious stuffed fish fry which is tangy and spicy.I was fascinated when I saw a stuffed Pomfret recipe. Usually there are different types of stuffing like sauteed prawns or crab meat. But here I used a tangy tomato and onion masala very similar to the Karimeen  pollichathu, that I posted earlier. You can use two fish fillets and make a  sandwich or slit through the fish very close to its bone and fill in the stuffing. Give this recipe a try,you will surely love this.

Fish - 2
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/3 tsp

Lemon juice- 1 tsp
Salt- to taste



For the masala gravy
Onion diced - 1
Tomatoes - 2 medium
Green chilly - 2
Curry leaves chopped- 2 springs
Ginger- garlic paste- 2-3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder- a pinch
Garam Masala-  1/2 tsp
Vinegar - a few drops( optional) 
Coriander leaves
salt to taste
oil 

In order to prepare the masala heat oil in a pan and saute green chilly, ginger garlic paste, curry leaves till its raw flavor disappears. Add onions and saute till golden brown. Add chilly powder, turmeric powder and garam masala. Now add tomatoes and cook till it becomes soft ( you can at this stage add prawns or mashed potatoes if you like). Finally add vinegar and coriander leaves.

Clean the fish and cut open the stomach of the fish and slide in the knife and slit open length wise close to its bone thus making a pocket. Do not cut open. Squeeze lemon juice and let the fish rest for two minutes and wash again. This will help eliminate the fishy smell. Make a paste with chilly powder, turmeric powder, salt and marinate the fish and keep aside for five minutes. Stuff  the fish with the masala paste and fry in medium flame ( you can also cover with a lid for two minutes while frying to ensure that it gets properly cooked) till both sides are evenly cooked. 


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
