A quick, easy and yummy starter.
Fish fry is an ultimate favorite of a seafood lover. But it mainly includes Pomfret, Surmai, Bombil and so on here in Mumbai. It was 2006, that I got introduced to Rohu while in Ahmedabad for 2 years. I didn’t quite enjoy it, pomfret taste being at the back of my mind. Neither did I give up. A few tastings later I started enjoying the bitter sweet rustic taste of this river fish. And to ask the current situation, I enjoy making and eating Rohu atleast once a month. The mustard paste curry is may favorite preparation. I will share that soon.
It is a quick fry dish this time. My hubby got prawns and rohu together from the market. Prawns Malvani curry was the main dish for the evening. And rohu was cleaned, coated with turmeric packed in a dabba and off to the freezer to be used the next day or so. Prawns curry was gonna take some time as had to be clicked while being prepared for the blog and rohu was tempting as well. So just sneaked out two pieces to fry and relish. So here’s the recipe. (Well it was such a quick decision and making that couldn’t capture the ingredient and marination step)
So, marinated the pieces of rohu with salt to taste, 1 teaspoon of MOMmade Haldi Powder, 1 teaspoon of MOMmade Mirchi Powder and 1 & half teaspoon of MOMmade Malvani Mazala mixed in a half teaspoon of oil. Oil helps the masalas to coat well on the fish. These masalas were anyways being used in the Prawns curry. Kept aside for 15 minutes. And off they went in a pan with hot oil.
Fried on both sides for roughly 4 minutes each, covering for 2 minutes on medium flame and without cover for 2 minutes on a high flame till they got a slight brown color on them. Just checked them by pricking with a knife if they were done on the inside as well.
Removed on plate and served hot with a lemon slice. Isn’t it simple and quick? And yummy of course. So yummy that they got over in 4 minutes precisely.
Do give it a try and let me know how you like it. Also share your tips for a fish fry. And remember, ‘Yumminess Everyday‘.
