Pomfret Tava Masala

The masala on the tava fried Pomfret, which I prepared was spicy with pleasing flavours of chilli, turmeric, curry leaves and mild flavors of coriander/cumin powder. The fish was flaky, soft and utterly fresh. This recipe is easy to make, provided you need to have an iron griddle for frying the fish. When the fish is fried by tava method, it tastes better than the deep fried method. I love tava fried fish! Try this recipe and, I am sure you will love it.
