Fish Pulao / Pilaf

Here is a very simple pomfret and vegetable pulao packed with flavour. What I like about this dish is the mild flavour and also that you do not need any side dish to go with it.

You can cook it in your rice cooker or even on a stove top like I did. I'm sure your going to love it.

I used 4 pieces of cut pomfret and 1/2 cup basmati rice.
For spices
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 onion , 4 garlic cloves and ginger boiled and then made to a paste
2 tsp garam masala
1/2 cup mix veg chopped
1 sea food stock cube
2 cups water

To marinate the pomfret
2 tsp ginger/ garlic paste
1 tsp red chili
lime juice
salt to taste
1/2 tsp pepper

Marinate the pomfret after washing it in cold water a few times. Mix in all the spices and let it sit for 20 min. Then shallow fry the fish till light brown.

For the rice its best to soak the basmati for 15/20 min, then in a saute pan add oil or ghee and tip in the onion paste and the dry spices, cook for 5 min on low then add in the mix veg and the rice.

Saute the rice and veggies in the spices for 4/7 min on low heat making sure not to burn it, by doing this you will be sure to get fluffy and separate rice everytime.

Now add in 2 cups water and the stock cube, turn up the heat and wait for a boil.

Check for salt at this stage. Keep in mind the stock cube is already salty.

Once the water starts to boil keep the flame on low and cover with a tight lid. Let it cook for 15 min.

After 15 min open the lid and add in the fish pieces, you can now shut the flame off and allow the fish to stay in the pan for 5/10 min before serving.

If your using your rice cooker follow the same method but at the stage you add the stock cube and water simply put everything in your rice cooker.

That's all, now your done !
