Mackerel Fish Fry or Ayala Fry is prepared by marinating the fish pieces with spices and then shallow frying them. Quick and easy to prepare, the spice mix enhances its flavor.
Mackerel is a beautiful fish. It’s my favorite too. And I guess many fish lovers would share the same sentiment. It is a firm-fleshed flavorful fish that is high in nutrients and low in fat.
And Mackerel Fish Fry? Oh, Gosh! Don’t get me started.
Mackerel is known as Ayala in Malayalam and Bangda in Hindi.
This fish is available in abundance across the coastal belts of the Arabian sea – especially Kerala, Mumbai, and Goa.
Ha! That reminds me of the popular Mollywood song ‘Ayala porichathundu karimeen varuthathundu‘, where the heroine sings and asks her husband to have lunch with her, for she has prepared Mackerel Fish Fry and Fried Pearl Spots. Oh yeah!
I did hum this song when I made lunch today for it has been so long since we’ve had the luxury of having this fish. 😛
