Silver Pomfret fry/Avoli Porichathu

 
  Posted by Picasa

















Silver Pomfrets,called as Avoli/Akoli in Malayalam(Sorry, I dont know in other languages!)is always the no.1 fish delicacy that we always had on our dining table especially when the occasion was very special due to the presence of a guest or due to some celebration. Be it as a simple fry or in gravy form,this is perhaps one of the tastiest fish that one can always have.I cant say anything more.... I love this Silver beauty!Here is my Pomfret fry recipe:

Ingredients:

Silver Pomfrets-2- Medium size
Ginger+Garlic+Green chillies-1 tbsp(Pounded fine)
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Red chilli powder-1/2tsp(or more)
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
pepper powder-1/2 tsp
Salt-as required
Oil-for shallow frying

Method

Make a small gash on the side of the Pomfret and remove the intestines and clean well.Make small gashes thro'out the body of the Pomfret.Rub in salt,turmeric powder,chilli powder. Keep it for 10 minutes.Now heat oil in a frying pan.Fry the pomfrets on slow fire till both the sides are cooked well.Now add the curry leaves and the pounded ginger,garlic,green chillies.(If you add this earlier, the whole masala will get charred).Carefully turn the pomfret on both the sides so that this masala spreads all over.Reduce the flame. Cook it for another couple of minutes and the fry is now ready to go with steamed rice.

It is really difficult to be able to get good indian food supplies much less resto food here in Canada. The only thing they do well here is the bistro
