The Dosas and Potato Sabji and Chutney were barely digested and I was already onto lunch. Got my hands on some really fresh Pomfret fish the previous day and I couldn’t wait to cook them. I make fish curry a lot but I absolutely love to fry fish when it is fresh and new and firm. I wanted to try something different for my little girl… that she would also enjoy.
So I stood in the kitchen thinking… I picked out some things and decided to do a batter fried fish but not with a heavy batter…. just a light coating to make it crispy. Marinated the fish in some basic spices and let it sit for an hour. I use lime juice in the marinade to cut out the strong smell of the fish. Vinegar is also a good option.
Before frying dip it in cornflour and coat it with bread crumbs.
Shallow fry on medium flame till golden brown on both sides.
I was really happy with the result. It is simple, quick and beautiful. The best part was when I saw my daughter gobble it down. Definitely going to make more of this soon.
