Paplet fry with green masala recipe - Pomfret fry recipe

Paplet fry with green masala recipe - This is one of my most favourite fish fry  recipes and the reason I like pomfret fry so much  because it is not only tastes great but healthy  too and above all it is simple and easy to make. The spicy taste of this fish fry is simply wonderful. Like in our native place, here also we get fresh fish. 

There are many ways to make pomfret fry, but  this is the way the fish is fried in my family. The green masala in this recipe  is made using green chilies, which are known  for it's intense pungent taste. You can use any type of chili in this recipe, red or green, thick or thin, dry or fresh, but adjust the amount of chilies accordingly.This pomfret fry can be served with lunch or dinner and is mostly used as a side dish.

  • 4 medium sized white pomfret / paplet
  • Semolina or rava as required
  • Oil as required
For the green masala paste
  • 2 cups chopped  cilantro
  • 10-12 green chilies, chopped
  • 4 X 1" ginger pieces / adrak, peeled

Grind the above mentioned ingredients into  a fine paste. The paste should be thick and smooth. So, use very less water while grinding.

  3. Spread few tablespoons of  rava on a plate and then roll the marinated pomfrets over it to get a even coating.
  4. Heat a griddle and apply oil on it. Place 3 - 4 pomfret slices on it. Pour 1/4 tsp of oil from sides. Add more oil if you like it.
