Fish Lemon Gravy

Fish lemon gravy is basically my take on ‘Fried Pomfret Fish Lemon Gravy’. I was searching for some new fish recipes when I came across in on Pinterest from Deekshaa Athwani. Deekshaa did use a different kind of fish, which is Pomfret and is in the name she gave this recipe, as well as some other ingredients. I found her recipe and it sounded good to me so I had to try it out and let me tell you… it was just mouth-watering and appetizing.

My husband is a huge fan of fish as well as lemon so this was a great meal for him. It’s a very simple dish to make since fish doesn’t take that long to cook. You start off by making the gravy, which is very tasty, than you add in the potatoes and let them sit for a little to cook. Lastly, but serenely not least, fish and you just set it in the pan to cook. Like I said, it’s  simple yet very flavorful and something you should definitely try to create!
