Pomfret masala fry

on January 21, 2016

Being a true mangalorean, I always have a special love for seafood !! And that cook fish cooked in mangalorean way is always my fav !! Masala fry has been my all time fav since childhood, my mom used to make it for me very often. I have already posted one version of masala fry in my blog, Prawns Masala Fry

This is another version, I came across this recipe through my friend Aishwarya Kini, who also hails from mangalore and is a big time foodie.. She loves to experiment various kinds of recipes, and this is one of them. Hope you guys like it 🙂 Am sure you will. I did a little bit of alteration in the recipe, to suit my taste


  • Pomfret (or any flat fish) – 5 fillets
  • Red chillies (Kashmiri) – 15
  • Red chillies (round variety) – 5
  • Tamarind paste – 2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Garlic cloves – About 3 (minced)
  • Ginger – 1/2 inch (minced)
  • Green chillies (slitted) – 2
  • Coconut oil (preferably) – 2 tbsp
  • Curry leaves – about 10


  • Grind the red chillies, tamarind, salt with little water to a smooth paste
  • Heat oil in a pan, Add the ground masala and fry for a min. Now add the ginger, garlic and green chillies and fry for another min. Add a little water if it is too dry.
  • Now slide in the fish fillets, and let is cook on a low heat for about 4 min. Flip the fish and continue cooking, until the masala coats the fish well.
  • Mix in the curry leaves and give a gentle toss. Serve hot.
