How to Make Masala Mackerels

  • Cut away the head and tails of fish, gut them, wash and drain well.
  • Soak tamarind in vinegar and extract the juice.
  • Mix all the powders with this juice. Mix with all the chopped ingredients. Add salt to taste.
  • Smear each fish with some of this masala and fill some of it in the stomach cavity. Reserve the remaining masala.
  • Take a thick bottomed deep pan and line the base with a piece of banana leaf or foil. Pour some oil in it and spread a layer of fish in it.
  • Sprinkle some of the reserved masala on top.
  • Repeat the layers to use up all the fish, masala and oil.
  • Top with tomatoes.
  • Place the pan on a low flame.
  • Cover with a flat lid and place some live charcoal on it. Cook for about 25-30 minutes or till the fish is cooked.
  • Shake the pan gently to mix the layers, without breaking the fish.
