Tawa Surmai presents a unique blend of fish marinated with garlic, red chili paste and ginger. The mixture is then cooked on a griddle and then perfectly garnished through the use of lemon juice. The dish is easy to make, but perfect to devour. Try to serve it piping hot, because the best flavors are enjoyed when it is hot.

How to Make Tawa Surmai

  • Pat dry the steaks of king fish or the surmai
  • Marinate the fish with lemon juice, salt, red chili powder and turmeric powder. Set the marinated fish aside for an hour, preferably inside a refrigerator.
  • Now, in a separate bowl create a mixture of ginger paste, garlic paste and mustard oil.
  • Take the fish out of the refrigerator and marinate inside the second marinade. Now, keep the fish inside the fridge for a couple of hours.
  • Before you take out the fish, heat refined oil on a tawa. Once the oil is hot and has properly been simmered, take out the fish from the refrigerator.
  • Add the marinated steaks one after the other and cook evenly.
  • When the steaks have turned crisp and golden brown on both sides, take them off the tawa and place in a tray.
  • Serve the fish hot with some seasoning of salt.


Surmai fish is basically a sea fish among the mackerel variety of fishes. It is loved in India, because of its unique taste and is enjoyed after frying.
