Coming to the recipe, I have used medium size frozen nethili fish here which was free of tail/ head and cleaned well. If you can get fresh fish much better in taste and also will get cooked a bit faster so the cook time mentioned might differ a bit. Also when using any meat/ sea food always use turmeric powder to get rid of the smell. Also I have used egg white in the marination if you don’t like it you cold make it without egg whites too. So let’s get to the making!!
