How to Make Fish Pulav

  • Wash the rice and put in a colander to drain the water.
  • Clean the fish. Smear with a little salt and lemon juice. Keep aside for 1/2 an hour.
  • Cut the onions into thin slices.
  • Heat 3 tbsps of refined oil in a heavy-bottomed dekchi and season it with peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon sticks, crushed cardamoms and bay leaf.
  • Add the ground chillies and the pastes of ginger and garlic.
  • Stir and put in the fish. Fry till oil starts oozing out.
  • Put in the rice, turmeric, cumin seeds powder and enough salt.
  • Fry for some time so that the rice comes to a pale yellow colour.
  • Pour 3 cups of hot water and squeeze in the juice of the lemon. Make the fire medium.
  • Let it cook till the fish is tender and rice is cooked.
  • Heat 1.5 tbsps of ghee in another dekchi.
  • Put in the onion slices.
  • Fry till they are browned and become crisp.
  • Take out and keep aside.
  • Pour the ghee remaining in the dekchi over the ready fish pulav and mix well.
  • Transfer the pulav into a serving dish, garnish with the fried onion slices and serve hot.
