Mackerel is a very tasty and healthy fish having a big throne in center. It is like sardine and salmon having plenty of omega- 3 fats can help prevent breast, prostate, renal and colon cancers. It is rich in coenzyme Q10, antioxidants, which are helping to prevent cancer.

Tawa is griddle like cast iron made flat roundel shape frying pan, advantage is that by using less oil we can fry which will be healthy as good as tasty. More I have chosen a big size Mackerel so without tawa it would be little difficult to fry.How to make delicious mackerel tawa fry
