Goan style - Stuffed Pomfret Fry with Red masala

Goan cuisine reflects the combination of Arabian, Portuguese and native cultures ; being located on the western coast of India, the staple food in Goa is fish and common ingredients used are coconut milk and vinegar. Today I have got Stuffed Pomfret Fry with red masala- Goan style . The red masala used in this recipe is my adapted version of the well known red masala used extensively in non veg Goan cuisines. I love to use this masala in my non veg curry recipes, today I thought of trying something new with fish fry.

Preparation time : 15 -20 minutes
Cooing time : 10 minutes
Serves : 3-4


Ingredients :

  • 2 medium sized pomfret
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil , needed for each fish ( can use any oil of your choice)

Ingredients for stuffing ( red masala)
  • 6 tsp Kashmiri chili powder 
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 and1/2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 3 cloves
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 9 large cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1-inch slice of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 inch piece of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp tamarind paste
  • 3/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut
  • Salt, to taste

Preparation :

  • Cut the fish near its stomach area and clean the inside portion very thoroughly.  
  • Make slits with a knife on both the sides of the fish , every 1 " interval .Slits are needed for better stuffing the fish.
  • Now prepare the red masala by blending all the ingredients for stuffing , keep aside.
  • Fill this stuffing inside the cavity of the fish and also in every slit on both the sides of the fish.
marinade

  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil  in a non stick pan on high , reduce the heat to medium high before sliding in the fish, pan fry the fish for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until it turns a golden brown color on both the sides. Cooking on medium high helps the fish get cooked evenly from  outside and inside both at the same time.
