2 Whole Mackerels or Pomfret
2 tsps Jeera or jeera powder
2 tbsps Chilli powder
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Garam Masala
A little Coriander
1 medium sized Onion cut finely lengthwise
Salt (To clean the fish and also to taste) (I use black salt)
Oil for frying
A little Semolina (Rava)
Clean the fish throughly. Remove the innards the scales, fins and part of the tail and slice it on either side lengthwise. Then sprinkle the fish with salt and a little bit of lime juice and leave it for 20 minutes. This will remove the dirty odor of fish.
Meanwhile, grind together all the other masala except onions. Make it a thickish paste.
Stuff the fish with this masala and a little bit of onions. Then apply masala outside also. Secure with string if it is bulging.
Sprinkle a little rava on both sides and deep fry it.
Serve with sliced Onions and Lime Wedges.
