Herring Roe Masala Fry

Roes and caviares are perhaps the richest delicacies of sea food. The soft herring roe/ milts is the produce of the male fish . The milt/ roe is deliciously creamy and tasty.

I marinated these soft herring roes in meet mirsang/ mangalorean chilli paste.
Ingredients: Serves 2
Soft Herring Roes- 250 gms
For Meet Mirsang/ Chilli paste:
Kashmiri Chilli powder- 2 tsps
Cumin Powder- 1tsp
Tumeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Vinegar- 1tbsp
Salt to taste.
Water as required to make paste.
1.Take all masala ingredients in a bowl, add water to make a shiny paste. Do not make runny or too thick. Marinate cleaned roe in this paste for 1/2 hour.
2. To fry: In a hot tawa heat sufficient vegetable or coconut oil to almost smoking or very hot.
Place roe carefully in oil , reduce heat slightly and do not move roe till done on that side. Then turn over carefully and cook the other side. It takes almost no time to cook. When fried on a brisk flame, the roe curls into tight firm spirals.
Serve hot as a snack with drinks.
