Pomfret Green Masala Rawa Fry

Pomfret Green Masala Rawa Fry

Pomfret Fish Fry is one of the favorite in our family. To make this simple Pomfret rawa fry, you need to first marinade the fish in the green masala paste. The fish is then coated with semolina and shallow fried. You can also use other fish like Kaane (Silver Whiting), Surmai (King Fish), Basa or just try your hands on some other fish that’s available to you and let me know how it goes. 🙂 This is another amazing recipe from my mother in law. She makes some amazing seafood preparations, missing home now. Hope you guys enjoy them.

We are celebrating Diwali – the festival of lights, this week. Diwali is the brightest Indian Festival and marks the victory of light over dark. I wish you all a very Happy Diwali & a Prosperous New Year. May our lives be filled with peace, love, good health and prosperity in the coming year.

Thanks for stopping by.
