Pomfret in Koliwada masala

Pomfret in Koliwada masala?Yes,few days back I came across this recipe in  my dear friend Aparna Kamath’s blog and I was tempted to try it that very moment.The original recipe called for Haddock fish,but I opted for Pomfret which I already had in hand and planned to experiment with that itself.The result was simply good.The taste was simply superb.Fish Koliwada is a popular dish of Mumbai and I have tasted it several times almost every visit to Mumbai and relished it thoroughly.Makes an excellent party teaser.
