Seafood always implied Pomfrets,Kingfish or Prawns…And thats the case with most of Mumbai Ite’s like me. Having access to the best and fresh seafood,we didnt bother to venture into the other options. Besides those options didnt appeal much,especially with traditional recipes like this one makes Pomfret Fry the best in the world for me!



  1. Prepare the marinade by mixing lemon juice or vinegar, turmeric, chili powder, salt and ginger garlic paste. Add the fish to the marinade and leave it for at least an hour. You can marinate the fish in the morning and prepare it in the evening. At th
  2. Take chickpea flour or besan and rice flour in separate plates.Now roll the pomfret first in the besan and then in the rice flour.
  3. Fry in oil on both the sides till crisp. The lemon juice reduces the fishy smell and the fish becomes crisp because of the besan and the rice flour.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
