How to make Karimeen Pollichathu / Baked Pearl Spot fish

  3. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a frying pan. Add mustard seeds, when they splutter add onions and saute till they are transparent.
  4. Now add chopped ginger and chopped garlic, mix well.
  5. In this add red chilli flakes, turmeric powder, pepper powder and salt.
  6. At last add the juice of kudampuli and mix well.
  7. Remove from flame and keep aside till it attains room temperature.
  8. Apply this evenly on the slitted fish. Run the banana leaves over the flame to make them pliable. Apply a little oil on banana leaves with muslin cloth.
  9. Wrap each fish individually in the banana leaves and tie with a thread, so that the masala doesn't come out.
  10. Roast on a shallow pan or griddle for 2 to 5 minutes flipping over at equal intervals.
