Bombil is a seafood I got introduced to when I came to Mumbai. Its a super soft fish and the best place to have it in Mumbai is Gajalee. This is the traditional recipe for Bombil fry.
Clean the fish,slightly cut along the stomach and take off the spine as that is the only major bone.
Squeeze out the water in the fish by pressing it between your palms.
Marinate the fish with ginger garlic paste,red chili powder,turmeric powder and salt. Place the fish in a plate and tilt the plate and keep for about 15 minutes so that the excess water is drained.
Mix rice flour and rawa and place in a plate. Coat the fish with the mix and shallow fry for 5 minutes.
