Hello dear readers! Today I’m going to share a tasty recipe of  Baby Anjal tawa fry. Yes, for this recipe basically baby Seer fish is used. You may prepare this with other fish like Mackerels, Sardines, Pomfrets etc. This recipe was shared to me by my aunt. She happened to taste this at her relatives place who cooks excellent seafood. The recipe is simple yet tasty and with a twist. This tawa fry makes an excellent party starter…Usually most of the recipes are shared with me with just the list of ingredients and the method and I experiment with the eye ball measurement and try to give the measurement here approximately. So dear Readers, please adjust the ingredients as per your taste.
