Follow this method to make masala pomfret
Start with cleaning the fish. Once done, prepare the marination for the dish. Chop the garlic cloves finely to make a paste. After this, add salt and red chilli powder in the garlic paste. Then add roasted gram flour, turmeric powder and coriander powder. Finish the paste by adding a few drops of mustard oil.
Now, before coating the fish with the paste, grease it with mustard oil. It’s now time to wrap the fish in banana leaves. Wash the leaves and cut them in equal squares. Before wrapping the fish, heat the leaf a bit. This will protect the leaves from tearing apart.
After you have wrapped the fish with banana leaves, tie a thread around and put it in the refrigerator for one hour. It’s now time to cook the fish. There are two ways of doing this. Here, we have cooked the fish in the pan.
Heat the butter in a pan and put in the fish after unwrapping it and removing the banana leaves. Cook the fish for 3-4 minutes. You can also cook the fish in a steamer. Just put the wrapped wish in a steamer for 15-20 minutes and it will be ready!
