recipe for bulti (tilapia)

Cooking bulti is really easy especially if you have already had the fish gutted etc. at the fish market at Murada in Omdurman.

After washing the fish thoroughly, add the following ingredients: 1 clove of crushed garlic (all per kilo of fish), 1/2 teaspoon of kammuun (cumin), a pinch of kasbara (coriander), juice from one 1 large leemuun (lime), a pinch of filfil (black pepper) and a sprinkling of salt.

Marinate it for about half an hour

Coat the fish in flour and cook in hot oil until the fish has turned brown.

Serve hot with tahinah (tahini), tomato salad, limes and ‘eesh baladi (round bread).
