|Baked Whole Fish Masala in Banana Leaf - Indian Style|
Baked Whole Fish Masala / Meen Pollichattu, a healthy indian style fish masala preparation which can be enjoyed with rice.
This method can be tried with any fish like Pearl Spot / Karimeen, Red Snapper / Sankara and Ayala. I have always tried fish masala recipe on stove top or steamer method. Those who doesn't have oven or otg, can try this recipe using steamer or cook in pan. We can either use fried fish or raw fish to prepare this masala. Either way gives good results.
I have used coconut oil here to bring out the flavors of coconut in masala, but you can also use any other vegetable oil or olive oil.
You can use coconut milk to prepare thick masala, which will give a different flavor. But using coconut flakes gives crunchy taste and that's what my husband also likes. The crunchy taste reminds us of Pallipalayam Chicken Masala. Try this delicious preparation for Christmas / New Year menu and enjoy with your family.
