Pomfret Green Masala Rawa Fried

We all have fried fish coated with red masala or just seasoned with salt. This variation in which I have used green masala gives the fish a different flavour which is quite tasty. You will have to try the black pomfret green masala rawa fried yourself, in order to experience the flavours.
