Have you guys ever wondered what would be the inner feeling of a fish, who is aware that its going to turn into a fry?..a chicken, waiting for it to be broiled in a rotiserrie ......oooouuuuuhhhh!!! (not the way to start a food blog..isnt it...I am being devilish!)
Saw the post by Nags and Mishmash on this recipie, and had been longing to try it out ever since..but alas!!..just didn't have the basic infrastructure to go forward with it...you neither have a Karimeen(Pearl-spot), nor the plantain leaf (vaaya-ela)!!
You can never even think of a "Meen pollichathu" without these. But as it was Onam season all in the air for Mallus lately, and as a famous quote goes for all keralites..."Ullathu kondu Onam polae"..(just to mean -Make the best of what you've got), decided to experiment with the next best available resource....the only fish that was available in my freezer(dont know what its called)....and ofcourse, Alluminium foil !!!! (Thats what experiementing is all about, isn't it).
(You make a decision to do something, and nothing's gonna hold you back!!!!)
I had no idea how its gonna turn out to be..as I didn't know for how long I should grill the fish and so, to be on the safer side, followed the recipie by Mishmash, of grilling the fish after lightly frying in oil. (Atleast, the fish will stay cook, and be still edible..if my attempt turns out to be a bumper flop).
Here is my version of Meen Pollichathu, with a twist...!!!
(God bless you, Jack and Rose....!!! I am sorry I had to do this to you...but, thats what cooking non-veg is all to mankind)
