Grilled Fish

·        Katla/Catla fish (medium size )-8-10 pieces
·        Small onion -1 no
·        Ginger -garlic paste-1tsp.
·        Poppy seed paste -1tsp.(optional)
·        Green chili paste-1 no(can avoid for child or deseed)
·        Finely chopped fresh coriander leaves -1 handful (if it have to your home )
·        Kashmiri red chili powder -1/2 tsp.
·        Lemon juice of one lemon
·        Salt to taste
·        Little amount of olive oil for greasing
·        In a blender first blend onion, ginger, garlic and green chilies and make a fine paste.
(If use poppy seeds, then first  put it  into a dry blender  and blend it. Next add onion, garlic, ginger  and chilies in it and make a fine paste.)
·        In a big mixing bowl put fish piece and add prepared paste and rest ingredients except olive oil.

·        Keep this marinating in to refrigerator for 1/2 an hour.
·        Heat a frying pan or griddle pan (which I have used).Grease it with olive oil well and arrange fish pieces in it.

·        Keep on the flame high for first 2-3 minutes, then reduce the flame, cover with a lid for another 10-12 minutes.

·        Open the lid, the bottom side which was touching with the pan will become blackish-brown, then turn over another side without lid keeping on flame at low. Finally grill for 3-4 minutes.

·        Serve hot with mustard sauce and salad.
