Naadan Kerala Fish Roast

by christieanil

Naadan Kerala Fish Roast is an awesome fish delicacy, a very popular dish in Kerala Cuisine. This is a real treat for fish lovers out there. Fried fish is cooked in a delectable tomato based tangy gravy. If you are in mood for something spicy, hot and tangy, then go in for the dish. This is a special and unique dish with a thick aromatic gravy. Fried fish slices should be well coated with the flavorful masala. I prepare it for special occasions. This is a flavor packed fish delicacy with balanced spices. Of course, you can have it more spicy and hot. If you want it mild, then adjust the spices as per your requirements. Kids require it mild since they cannot withstand too much spiciness. This is a satisfying dish that your family and friends will definitely enjoy. Sauteing onions grant an extra kick to the fish preparation.

Naadan Kerala Fish Roast goes well with ghee rice, pulao, jeera rice or plain rice. Have it with some raitha on the side. The classic Naadan Kerala Fish Roast will never disappoint us. You can use any fleshy fish for the dish though i personally prefer king fish or salmon for the dish. Another important point to keep in mind is that cooking in coconut oil adds more flavor and aroma to fish dishes. Kerala is a land of coconuts and cooking in coconut oil makes Kerala dishes unique and flavorful. Fish is nutritious, rich in protein and other vital nutrients required for body. Consume fish daily for a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Growing up kids need daily protein intake for a healthy body and formation of strong bones.

Upto the part where tomato added is correct.. For nadan fish roast, you have to layer the shallow fried fish in a baking pan, add the fried onion tomato mix and 1/2 cup of coconut milk.. bake at 180 degrees for 20 mints.
