Kokum Fish (Sola bangade)

Isn’t that very tempting??

This is a Marathi dish I guess, because aayi learnt it from pachi(aayi’s sister). This dish is very delicious and a favourite of everybody at my home.

Some of my bachelor friends keep asking me about easy to do dishes. So I think they will deffinitely like this one.

Preferably Bangada(Mackerel) is used for this. I haven’t tried this with any other fish, but prawns can also be used in the place of bangada. It tastes great.

We call it Bangade kholu(Mackerel pickle) or sungata kholu(Prawn pickle) in Konkani.

Ingredients:
Mackerel(Bangada) pieces 6 (or prawns 1/4 kg)
Garlic 6 cloves (if they are big, use 2-3)
Coriander powder 3/4 tea spn
Turmeric a pinch
Chilli powder 3/4 tea spn
Kokum pieces 3-4
Oil 1 tea spn
Salt

Method:
Mix crushed garlic, corinader powder, chilli powder, turmeric and salt.
Heat oil and fry the mixture for 1 min. Add fish or prawn. Add half cup water (If prawn is used, fry it for sometime before adding water). Now add kokum pieces (I was not having kokum with me, so I used tamarind 1/2 tea spn, so i think I have to change the name as tamarind fish!!!). Cook till the fish is completely cooked (The color of the fish changes from transparent to white).
Serve hot.

Serves : 3
Preparation time : 10min

I loved this recipe.Its good for people who have cholestrol as this doesnt have coconut gravy as other konkani dishes have.I also added onions to above recipe .It was very tasty thanks.
I have got good pictorial recipes which I didnt find in many other konakani sites.
Keep up the good work.

Amazing yummy dish, one of the few fish gravies without the use of coconut or its milk.
Also amazing site, mostly all recipes are from the Maharastra – Goa – Karnataka coastal belt.

Shilpa,
Use Salmon and try this recipe. Just a suggestion.We call it Sola Salmon :-)
For all my Aayi’s Bangade Recipes I use Salmon as it is a Fishy Fish just like Bangade.
