‘Ghol or Jewfish’ in Vegetable Gravy

Ghol fish (or Jewfish): The scientific name is Protonibea Diacanthus, a type of croakers, a large saltwater fish found primarily in shallow tropical waters. Jewfish is considered amongst the most-expensive variety of the marine fish. 

This fish cum vegetable gravy is amazingly tasty mainly because of the flavour of white cooking vinegar.

The Recipe:

Quantity of ghol fish or jewfish: 8 thick pieces

  • Sauté finely sliced pieces of 3 small onions in adequate quantity of warm, any mild-flavor vegetable oil; add mashed pieces of 8-10 garlic cloves, and smidgen the mixture with salt – according to preference of taste,
  • Blend the translucent onion mixture with  finely sliced pieces of 2 medium tomatoes, pieces of one green chilli for mild pungent flavour, and sliced pieces of a handful of curry leaves,
  • Combine the mixture with finely sliced pieces of 3 small potatoes and finely sliced pieces of a small cauliflower,
  • Blend the mixture with 1 tsp. of any garam masala – according to preference of taste, 1 tsp. of turmeric powder, 4 tbsp. of white cooking vinegar – this vinegar has a sweet-tangy flavour, and 2 ½ glass of water,
  • When the vegetable pieces are par-cooked, add the ghol fish/jewfish pieces to the gravy; cook the fish pieces in the vegetable-gravy mixture for 10 minutes in low heat.
