Crispy Mackeral (Bangda) Fish - The Special Kokum Recipe
Crispy Mackeral (Bangda) Fish - The Special Kokum Recipe

Today I had prepared this stunningly delicious Mackeral (Bangda) fish as my evening snack on my hubby's demand. My husband loves seafood and especially fish. Mackeral fish is also known as Bangda in hindi. Very soft and easy to cook. The recipe is very simple with the basic masalas yet heavenly delicious.

The most important aspect in making any fish is its cleaning. Always make sure that your fish is cleaned properly. There should not be anything that cannot seem to grab with your fingers. 

Following are the ingredients required and then the method of preparation. To make it more easier to understand I have added the step by step pictures along with the recipe.

3 tbsp kokum syrup (soak 3 to 4 dried kokum in water for an hour)
