Combine all the listed ingredients except oil, semolina and flour (garlic cloves, fennel seeds, ginger, cloves, peppercorn, cardamom, cinnamon, Red chilies, tamarind(without seeds), sugar, turmeric, salt in a grinder). Add vinegar also in this mixture.

Grind them to form smooth thick paste. The mixture shouldn’t be very thin. Now stuff this red paste into the pomfret. Also coat this red paste on the outer cover of pomfrets. Marinate the pomfrets for about an hour or overnight.

Take a small tawa or pan add oil. Keep the gas on low flame and wait until oil becomes hot. In the meanwhile take semolina and flour. Mix them with your hands or spoon. Dip the marinated pomfrets in the above mixture. Coat them from both the sides.

Shallow fry the pomfret from both sides.

Repeat the same process with the rest of pomfrets.

Shallow fry the rest of pomfrets for 15 mins or until crisp, brown in color from both sides.

Place the fried pomfrets on tissue napkins to remove excess oil from them. Your Goan Pomfret Fry is ready. Garnish with sliced onion, mint leaves, coriander leaves and lime.
