Pomfret rava fry


I guess took a very long break from blogging.Will try to be more regular from now on. I was super excited to see the big pomfret as its not that easy to get them in delhi. The moment I saw it I just grabbed !! My daughter totally indulges fish fry and I was sure she is gonna relish this big catch. The only thing that popped up when I bought this pomfret was to make rava (semolina) fry.

It’s a easy recipe and I am sure many people already know it. Let’s look at the ingredients and method.

For tava fry:
200gms of rava (semolina)
1 tsp turmeric powder
