Bihari Litti Chokha Recipe:

This post is very special because of few reasons.

a.) This is the most popular dish of Uttar Pradesh (my native place) and Bihar (husband’s native place), so it becomes the favorite of both of us. You can also easily spot small eateries road side in UP and Bihar serving authentic Litti Choka with roasted tomato chutney.

b.) This dish makes me nostalgic about the childhood days or the family gathering when the family together use to cook this dish. Each family member was assigned some or the other task, be it of sattu stuffing preparation, Litti making, Chokha preparation or Baking Litti.

Sundays are usually chicken curry day at my place. Fish curry is made rarely may be because everyone likes only “Rohu” fish at my place which requires time and a lot of patience to eat it. I first time had Pomfret Masala Fry in Daman at a shack and I really liked it. This spicy masala coated pomfret fry was melt-in-mouth and with a dash of lemon, it tasted absolutely delicious. I tried the deep fried version of pomfret fry at Tarkarli (locally called: pamphlet) but didn’t like it much.

Fried Pomfret or Pomfret  Tawa Fry:

I will anytime choose Tawa fry version over deep fried for not only health reasons but also because I like that spicy masala that coats the fish. You can also make Tandoori pomfret by cooking the fish in tandoori masala, this would be a healthier option. Let me share some basic benefits of adding fish in your diet. Fishes are the rich source of essential fatty acids (omega-3 fatty acids)and minerals.  It also contains a good amount of iodine which is critical for the thyroid gland. Thus, Pomfret is good for eyesight, healthy hair and skin.

Pomfret Fish Masala Fry

On one such Sunday morning, we went to the fish market to buy “Rohu” fish but I also got tempted to try making Pomfret Fish Masala Fry at home. It’s really simple and easy to make. The fish gets cooked in 10-15 minutes and marination is advisable for 15 minutes. Cooking this fish in mustard oil adds more flavor to the dish. Use non-stick pan or kadhai to prepare Pomfret Masala Tawa fry so that the masala don’t stick in the pan or kadai.
