Pomfret Spicy Green Masala

This is an improved version over Prawn Spicy Green Masala. We used the same green masala paste as we used for prawns. Needless to say this tastes heavenly and finger licking good! Can be served as a starter or as accompaniment.

Whole White Pomfrets - 400Gms
Lemon - 1+1/2
Salt and pepper
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 Tsp
Shallots - A handful cleaned and chopped
Onion - 1 small cleaned and chopped
Ginger - 1" piece chopped
Garlic - 6 flakes peeled
Green Chillies - 4 cleaned and chopped
Coriander Greens - A handful
Mint leaves - A handful
Green Tomato - 1 small chopped(Reduce lemon squeeze by half if you add this)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 Tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 Tsp
Oil - 10-15Ml

Clean wash and drain the pomfrets.
Put gashes on both the sides and marinate with salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and 1/2 lemon squeezed, for 30 mins in the fridge.
Clean, wash and grind the greens with chillies, ginger, garlic, onions and optional green tomato to a fine paste.
Heat oil in a shallow pan, fry ginger garlic paste, followed by the green masala paste till oil leaves the sides.
Add juice of lemon, turmeric powder, cumin powder, about 1/2 tsp pepper and salt to taste.
Place the pomfrets one by one, cover with the masala on both sides and cook for 5-10 mins on slow heat, changing side after 5 min.
Transfer to a platter and serve with lemon wedges and onion slices.
