Fish Majboos

My mother prepare this in different way here I put my own ideas. I think Kingfish only give exact taste for this rice recipe so I will not encourage other fish. We can prepare this with Prawn also but method will be little bit different.

Kingfish                                   : 1 kg
For fish fry 1
Out of 1kg fish take 200g and cut into squiae pieces
Turmeric powder                     : ¼  tsp
Pepper powder                        : ½ tsp
Salt to taste
Oil                                         : ½ tbsp
For fish fry 2
Chilli powder                          : 1 ½ tsp
Kashmiri chilli powder             : ½ tsp
Turmeric powder                    : ¼ tsp
Lemon juice                            : 1 tsp
Oil                                        : 1 ½ tbsp
Basmati rice                           : 1 kg
Clove                                     : 5 (crushed)
Crushed cardamom                  : 1 tsp

Chopped ginger                      : 1 tbsp
Chopped garlic                       : 1 tbsp

Dried lemon                           : 1
Salt to taste
Oil                                        : 2 tbsp

  1. Divide the fish into two part (small portion of square pieces and large portion of big pieces )
