How to make Tawa Crispy Pomfret Fry Recipe

  1. To begin making the Tawa Fry Crispy Pomfret Recipe, wash and clean the pomfret fish properly and make gashes on both sides using a knife.

  2. Now, we need to marinate fish so add turmeric powder, salt, lemon juice and crushed peppers and rub it properly on the fish. Let it sit for 15 minutes.

  3. Next step includes making a smooth paste by mixing curd, red chilli powder, fennel powder, finely chopped coriander leaves and curry leaves. Now rub this masala paste on the fish making sure to push the masala inside the gashes.

  4. Marinate the fish for 1 hour in refrigerator. Heat a non stick pan and add melted butter into it.

  5. Put the pomfret on the pan and fry for 8 to 10 minutes on one side in medium flame. Carefully flip the fish and cook on the other side too for 8 to 10 minutes. Make sure to not overcook the fish otherwise it may become dry.

  6. Drain the excess butter using a paper towel. Serve it hot.
