I am compiling this list from various sources. Please feel free to let me know any changes/corrections needed. I am trying my best to source the names in native Telugu (తెలుగు) language. Please help me with the names in the comment section if possible.

What is the Telugu name for Apollo Fish?


This is one of the common question I get asked by many people online. I would have this added to this blog, so that it will help many more who are looking for this answer. Apollo fish is not a fish variety, it is a fish preparation common in bars and restaurants in and around Hyderabad. You may also find this is other cities in Andhra and Telangana region, but very unlikely you will find this anywhere else. Apollo fish preparation must be prepared using a firm fish as you need to batter roast it first and then need to toss in in the sauce preparation. For this reason most restaurants use Butterfish also called as Murrel Telugu name: Bonke (బొంకే) for this preparation. I hope I have given you with some interesting information today. Have fun cooking and as always, keep enjoying  your fish.

    1. Hi Jyothsna,

      Apollo fish to my knowledge is a fish preparation and not a fish itself. For Apollo fish you need to use a firm fish and cannot use flaky fish as you need to toss the fish during preparation. In this case you can use Murrel fish, ఎర్రమత్త చేప.

      Let me know if you have any further clarifications.

    1. Vitamin D cannot be obtained from food as per my knowledge, your body has the capability to produce Vitamin D from sun light, that is why babies with bone problems would be made to lye in the sun during dawn after giving them oil massage. This is the only way to avoid Rickets as well. Do not go with any products that claim that it has Vitamin D, it is all not true.

      Delete
    2. Usually COD liver oil contain Vitamin D. It is the fish source
