Grilled Patrani Macchi

This is patrani macchi with a twist..
Ok, what is Patrani Macchi? it is a Parsi dish - steamed fish in green masala, and the twist is that I grilled it and added some sides. I havent tried steamed fish at home so presenting to you, the grilled version. Enjoy!!


Green masala

2 pomfrets
8 garlic pods
1 cup chopped coriander
Handful of mint leaves
1/2 tsp sugar
Salt to taste
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp ghee

Fried onion and coconut 

1/2 cup desiccated coconut
5 garlic pods finely chopped
2 onions chopped
2 tsp ghee/oil
1/2 tsp Amchur powder 
Salt to taste

Grind the ingredients of green masala.
Thaw the fish in mixture of besan (chana dal), lemon juice and milk, it helps remove the fish odour.

Trim the fish and use a sharp knife to carefully make a slit across the length of the each pomfret as shown in the picture - from stomach to neck - on one side.
Make sure it doesn't touch the bone. Now carefully make 2 horizontal on one side of pomfret.

Apply the green masala to fish and let it marinade for 30 mins.

Place both the fishes on wire rack and set the microwave to grill mode.
Grill for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat ghee/oil in a wok and add onions, garlic. Fry till they turn golden brown, now add coconut and fry for another 2 minutes. Sprinkle salt and amchur powder and mix well.

Grilled patrani macchi is ready!!!
Serve it with green chutney and fried onions and coconut :-)
