    The Karimeen pollichathu, that I know of is wrapped in banaba leafs and placed in an earthern container and with no water or oil fried over medium heat. This is just another fish fry. Like any other fish fry, it is good. Nothing exceptional. Why in the world do you need aluminium foil for ?

    I dont think you have ever eaten Karimeen pollichathu ? Plz go to Manipuzha (a small resturant on the right hand side of the sasthri road Kottayam ) and taste it once. You yourself can make out the difference between ur recipe and the actual recipe.By the way this recipe is a good tasty Karimeen fry .

    Pollicha fish is never fried.Aluminium foil can be used instead of plaintain leaves(i have done that)- it is ok though the taste isnt close to the one prepared using plaintain leaves.

    There is no frying involved.. )Grind together the ingredients for making the paste. 2)Marinate the fish with the above paste for an hour or so. 3)Coat a few heated plantain leaves with oil. 4)Place the marinated fish over it and place the whole thing in a frying pan. 5)Keep the flame on low, cover and cook, till it is done. 6)Heat up another frying pan. 7)Add the chopped small onions, ginger, green chillies and curry leaves and sauté lightly. 8)Place the cooked fish (without the plantain leaves) in the above pan and coat it with the sautéed masala. :- See to it that the fish doesn’t get broken. :- Do not discard the plantain leaves as u can use it while serving. 9)Add coconut milk and mix well with the masala. 10)Adjust the level of salt. 11)Simmer for a few mins, till the all the water gets evaporated. 12)Wrap it in the plantain leaves while serving.
