Air Fryer Whole Pomfret Fish In Cafreal Masala#Improv

I love baking/grilling the fish in the air fryer, for two reasons, one that the house does not smell of fish and the next you need not give attention to it. Place it in the air fryer basket and set the timer.. that's it. The fish got so nicely golden and was still juicy and delicious. Do try this adjust the spice level according to your taste. I love this spicy, the cafreal masala is so delicious, if you have this with steamed rice it will not be spicy, so do try this.
For One Medium Pomfret
4 Green Chillies
1 Bunch Coriander leaves
2" Piece Ginger
6 Cloves Garlic
½ Teaspoon Poppy Seeds
6 Whole Black Peppercorns
1 Small Piece Cinnamon
½ Teaspoon Heaped Cumin Seeds
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric powder
5 Cloves
2 Cardamons
1 Tablespoon Heaped Tamarind juice or Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
Salt to Taste

Grind all the ingredients to a fine paste. Add salt, taste for sourness add tamarind paste according and give it a pulse.  
Next, apply 2 tablespoons of the ground masala to the fish. Rub it in well. Leave to marinate 10 - 15 minutes.
Preheat the air fryer , 180°C, for 5 minutes. Brush the basket with oil and place the fish, set the timer for 5 minutes. 
Flip the fish and again set the timer for 5 minutes. It's ready!!

For the Sauce Coating
Heat oil in a frying pan add the remaining ground paste and wash the blender jar with ½ cup water, add that water too and fry till oil starts to leave the sides, add the fish gently to this masala and coat it well. 
The gravy should be nice and thick and coating the fish, but you can adjust to your preference. 
Serve it our a bed of steamed rice , cauliflower or enjoy it chapatti.
Enjoyed this with cauliflower rice, I added ¼ cup water to pan and a little of the cafreal paste saute the cauliflower rice and enjoyed with the fish. This was super delicious.

My Notes
I have not calculated the carb count for this. If you are very particular then check the carb count and accordingly enjoy this recipe. The carb count is only on the spices.
