Whenever we go out to a restaurant we always ask if grilled pomfret is available :-) Yes, this is our favourite pomfret dish.So this time we thought of giving this a try and it turned out really awesome !! Henceforth we do not have to depend on the restaurants and can have grilled pomfret at home and that too whenever we wish :-)

Ingredients -
pomfrets with slits (2)
lemon juice
red chilly powder

coriander powder
cumin powder
methi powder

carom seeds(ajwain)

Method -
Wash the slitted pomfrets.
Mix in a bowl - lemon juice,salt and red chilly powder.
Apply this mixture to the pomfrets well(inside the slits) on both sides.
Now take a bowl and mix in the following - curd,ginger-garlic paste,dhaniya powder,jeera powder,methi powder,turmeric powder and garam masala powder and salt to taste.
Mix this well and then apply to the pomfrets on both sides.
Now sprinkle a few ajwain/carom seeds over the pomfrets.
Refrigerate the pomfrets for 6-7 hours or overnite.(See pic below)
