Tawa Fish Fry (Konkani style)
May 1, 2015 Posted by Shweta Shanbhag
- Make a paste of garlic pods, red chilli powder, a pinch of turmeric and salt according to taste.
- This paste can be stored in the refrigerator and used for about a week
- Marinate the fish in this paste. Apply cuts to the fish and then marinate if using whole fish. This can be left for 15-20 mins for the fish to marinate well.Here I have used Bangda (Mackerel) and Surmai (King Fish)
- Heat a non stick pan. Take 3-4 tbsp of Sooji (Rawa) and 1 tbsp rice powder and mix well. Add a pinch of salt to this mixture. Roll the marinated fish in it so that its entirely coated and keep aside for a few minutes. You can also use only Rice powder or Rice Rawa instead of Sooji.
Add 1 tbsp oil on the tawa and then add the fish when the tawa is hot. You can roll the fish in the rawa once more just before adding it to the tawa for an even coating.
Cook on a medium flame. Turn the fish once the side looks golden brown. Fry the fish on a low flame till done. Should be cooked in a total time of 10 mins.
Chop onions, add a pinch of salt and lemon juice and serve with the fish.
This dish goes very well with rice and Onion Tamboli (another Konkani special) or Simple Garlic Dal.
