This is a Marathi dish I guess, because aayi learnt it from pachi(aayi’s sister). This dish is very delicious and a favourite of everybody at my home.
Some of my bachelor friends keep asking me about easy to do dishes. So I think they will deffinitely like this one.
Preferably Bangada(Mackerel) is used for this. I haven’t tried this with any other fish, but prawns can also be used in the place of bangada. It tastes great.
We call it Bangade kholu(Mackerel pickle) or sungata kholu(Prawn pickle) in Konkani.
Meckerel(Bangada) pieces 6 (or prawns 1/4 kg)
Garlic 6 cloves (if they are big, use 2-3)
Coriander powder 3/4 tea spn
Turmeric a pinch
Chilli powder 3/4 tea spn
Kokum pieces 3-4
Oil 1 tea spn
Mix crushed garlic, corinader powder, chilli powder, turmeric and salt.
Heat oil and fry the mixture for 1 min. Add fish or prawn. Add half cup water (If prawn is used, fry it for sometime before adding water). Now add kokum pieces (I was not having kokum with me, so I used tamarind 1/2 tea spn, so i think I have to change the name as tamarind fish!!!). Cook till the fish is completely cooked (The color of the fish changes from transparent to white).
Serves : 3
Preparation time : 10min
