Bangada is one of the most tempting Indian Fish.It has very strong aroma and yummy taste.This Bangda curry is very quick to cook and combination of Ginger,Garlic and fresh Tomato brings very zesty touch to this dry curry.

  1. 7-8 pieces of Fresh Bangada.(marinate in salt for half an hour)
  2. One Medium size onion duly cut in small pieces.
  3. 2 Inch piece of ginger finely crushed.
  4. 6-7 large garlic cloves finely crushed.
  5. One extra large size fresh tomato duly diced in small pieces.
  6. 2 tbspoon cooking oil.

And don't forget to fry some pieces of Bangada.I had taken four bangada's and parted them to make curry and Fry. Tail portion is always good to fry.Look at those tempting Bangada tails in the pan. Simple marination of salt,turmeric and red chilli powder was used to pan fry.
