Elikutty enjoys the dish with flaky Malabar porotta. Here is the recipe of neymeen nirvana in case you are interested to try it out.
The seer fish fillets are marinated with chilli powder, pepper powder, salt, turmeric powder and lemon juice. The marinated fillets are then grilled on a non-stick pan. Spread a plantain leaf on another hot pan and place the marinated fish. Add green chillies, curry leaves, ginger, salt, pepper powder and coconut milk as well.
