Bharle paplet ( Stuffed Pomfrets)

Pomfret or paplet as this fish is locally known is a very clean and tasty fish. And hence this fish can be used in various ways. The dish  I made today is prepared by stuffing green chutney and is  very yummy . It does take some time but the end result will leave you fully satistisfied. You can have it with hot rice and any curry of your choice.



Ingredients :


3 to 4 ...........palm sized pomfrets
2........................onions finely chopped
1 bunch............coriander leaves
1 cup.......freshly grated coconut
4 to 5 ...............green chillies
7 to 8............garlic flakes
1 ........lemon or equal tamarind

1 tsp.................pepper corns
1/2 inch ..........dalchini
1  1/2 tsp.......chilly powder
1 1/2 tsp......turmeric powder
1 1/2 tsp......karwari sambar masala
1/2 cup............semolina (rawa)
salt
coconut oil to fry




 Method :





Clean the pomfrets and remove the middle thorn taking care to keep the pomfret intact.
You can get this done also by your local fisher woman.
Apply salt, chilly pd , turmeric pd and sambar masala and keep the pomfrets aside.








Grind together coconut, coriander, green chillies, garlic, cloves, pepper , dalchini and tamarind.
Heat little oil and fry chopped onions, when they turn pink add above masala and fry till it is semi dry.












                Let this mixture cool and then stuff this in the pomfrets.







Heat the tawa and add coconut oil on it.
Coat the pomfrets with rawa on all sides and shallow fry on all sides till crisp.
