Pomfret – Few words about this fish
Pomfret is very popular fish in India. The word Pomfret originated from the Portugese word ‘pampo’. There are three types of pomfret, we can see in Indian waters, include: : silver, grey and black pomfrets.The Silver Pomfret is the most common of these three species. Pomfrets are one of the most popular fish in the menu of Indians. The fish is at its best taste when they are cooked fresh. We can prepared in many different ways including smoked, grilled, tandoori, pan fried and deep fried,steamed, baked or made into some spicy delicious gravy. They do not have a strong odor like other saltwater fish have.
Pomfret Makhmali – A New Recipe
This time I made this Pomfret Makhmali recipe using less spices to make it non spicy dish. This is also very healthy as it requires less oil. We know that fish provides a good source of high quality protein and contains many vitamins and minerals. What a satisfactory feeling a mom get while seeing her little one eat some healthy foods. In this recipe, I have marinated the fish pieces with cheese,cream, yogurt, lemon zest and a dash of seasoning and then shallow fry in less oil. Here the gravy is very creamy with a slight tangy taste due to adding lemon zest. This smooth gravy makes the taste of this dish more delightful. For this creamy and smooth gravy I named the dish Pomfret Makhmali. Ít tastes good itself, but if required can be had with roti or rice.
