Tawa fried Pomfret

Ingredients :
A) White Pomfret cut into half or kept whole as per choice ....with slits for masala penetration- 3 nos.
B) Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tbsp
C) Lemon juice of 2 small lemons
D) salt to taste
E) kashmiri mirch - 1 tsp for colour
F) Green chilis paste - optional
G) Coriander leaves - optional

H) Spices for dry roasting :
Whole Coriander seeds - 2 tsp
Whole Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 2 to 3 sticks
Cardamon - 3-4
Cloves - 4-6
Whole Black Pepper 15-20 
Tej Pata - 2 small
Whole dry red chili - 3-4

Procedure :
1. After dry roasting the spices at 'H', dry grind them into a not-very-fine powder.
2. Mix with all other ingredients at B to G with the dry spice mix . Add a little mustard oil (or any other oil of your choice). This is the marinade  to smear the fish with
3) Liberally coat the cleaned pomfret pieces (or whole) & even the cavites with the marinade.
4) Marinate for a couple of hours. I refrigerated the marinated fish overnight.
5) Tawa fried in mustard oil.

Instead of Tawa Frying, this can be grilled too.....

Quickfix medley-chicken (keema/mince), mushroom, boiled eggs

This is a non-recipe.
Weekend fridge leftovers...1/2 bowl of leftover cooked chicken mince, 3 day old button mushrooms. Semi soft Boiled eggs + mushrooms...both sauted in ghee (wanted to do it in butter but realised had run out of it) and spiced up with pepper & chili flakes quite liberally. ... And finally mixing it all up with the chicken keema (mince) which had been cooked in garlic butter with chopped onions, chopped ginger-garlic, salt, pepper and chili powder.

 Makes a good side dish this with bread, roti...but I had it with steaming hot rice.....
