From Grandma’s Kitchen: Stuffed Pomfret

Goans love their seafood. That is not a hidden fact. Another item that Goans love is chutney. Here is a recipe that combines both seafood and chutney.



1 large pomfret

½ coconut

1 bunch of coriander leaves

2 garlic flakes

¼  inch ginger piece

1 tbsp tamarind

2 green chillies

Sugar and salt to taste

3 peppercorns


For the chutney: Scrape the coconut and grind it with the coriander leaves, garlic, ginger, tamarind, green chillies, salt, sugar, and peppercorns.

Leave the pomfret whole and slit it on either side. Stuff the fish with the chutney, secure with a string, dot with ghee, and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 30- 40 minutes till done. Remove the string and serve hot.
