Mangalorean Plated Meal Series - Boshi# 28 - Kane Jeere Miri, Gosalem Thel Piao, Pathrade Fry & Rice

BOSHI#28


Last Sunday's visit to the fish market saw us buying a nice variety of fish, most of which are my favourites - kane (lady fish), kube (clams/cockles), bangde (mackerels), tharle (sardines), pamplet (pomfrets), sungta (prawns - which I have just started to eat in small portions). We are literally having a seafood fest and gorging on so many dishes day after day much to the displeasure of our son. 

A couple of days ago I made the traditional jeere miri curry which has always been my favourite. Unfortunately the weather outside was playing havoc with my camera and I couldn't get too many shots - so posting what the best that I could grab within a few seconds and so the colour  of the curry doesn't look perfect. Since I had left the fish whole (which I later realised I shouldn't have), I struggled to 'boshi' it, cuz the kane demanded more space than I could give it! Finally I dished out the slimmest of the lot.

The addition of the pathrade fry is not typical of me as I generally don't like to crowd my plate with too many things but to lure the son into eating some fish curry I decided to fry up the pathrade I had prepared last week. Don't ask me where I got the colocasia leaves from, I made these with palak which is a great substitute when you are craving for pathrade! So what's stopping you now? Go make some!

Write to me at ruchikrandhap@gmail.com and let me know how you like it, whether you've tried any of the boshis that I present and if yes, do send me a picture and I'll display it on my Facebook page!
