Ghee Roast is a popular manglorian Delicacy…Its feiry red, tangy and spicy with a flavor of aromatic ghee…
Ghee Roast is the one such dish which is loved from all kids to elders….
Squid are also known as calamari/Bandaas… This fish has no thorns or bones in it so one can enjoy it easily ….
This must be cooked properly otherwise it will turn rubbery while eating,thats why most of the people don’t like squid/Bandaas…
Its very simple to make yet delicious to taste,if done in proper way and cooked correctly ..😍❤
Ghee Rost can be made with vegetables like aloo /mushrooms/carrots/sweetcorn,paneer,chicken,eggs,fish/prawns or even with mutton,this ghee roast masala is versatile can be used with anything…👍👌
The ingredients used here are very handy and can be made very easily….
I like to say here that any fish dishes tastes heavenly the next day or with a duration of time after its prepared , if you make it in the morning enjoy it in the evening, by doing this tastes doubles,i know we can’t wait for it 😜but can enjoy it instantly no problem 😊 ….
