This is the mackeral I promised yesterday.
Recipe will be written soon. Real soon.
It turned out very well...
So the 5 km travel to get the fish was well worth it..
( Couldn't find mackeral nearby, so I went during the load shedding)
4 medium sized mackeral
One onion thinly sliced.
1 large Potato peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
Asafoetida ( heeng) and Methi ( fenugreek)
Powdered Coriander, Cumin, red Chilli.
Ginger garlic paste. 2 Green slit.
I mean that's all the ingredients that I used.
This couldn't get easier and simpler eh!
somebody asked if tey could use sea fish instead of the Rohu...
This how I cook mackeral... so i guess you can cook Sea fish the same way.
You can use Tomatoes though. Add it later.. I mean its good if it is semi cooked.
I didn't use Tomatoes for this Mackeral, but I do use too sometimes.
This was my simpler and usual quick version...
You may make two shallow cuts on each side of the fish like I did so that masala goes in when you marinate, or you may do without the cuts so that Fish don't come apart.
Marinate anyway in a little turmeric, Jeera and dhania powder and salt. Keep for an hr.
Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry each side for about 3 minutes each. Leave aside.
In the same pan, preferably new oil 1 and half TBS.
Add half tsp methi, and a pinch of heeng.
Add the onions and Green Chili and fry till onions are golden brown.
Add the ginger garlic paste and saute for about a minute.
Add half a tsp of jeera and dhania powder.
Same amount of red chilli and Turmeric( a little less turmeric)
Add the potatoes, and mix well.
Cover and lower the heat.
Cook that way for 5 minutes, opening the lid from time to time to mix.
Add hot water and let shimmer.
Add the fish.
Add salt to taste.
Shimmer for 10 minutes in medium and it is done.
Try and tell me how it went.
My attempts or experiments at/with photography. Food photography!
Kept the hammer aside to see the effect.
