Fish Fry is a very common recipe found throughout India, more specifically in the coastal areas. Since I hail from one of the coastal areas in Tamil Nadu, Fish Fry is a very common item found in our family meal. I don't like the Fish fries that are served in hotels as I feel there is always something lacking in it. This recipe is from my mother which we have followed through generations. It is a very simple recipe, you can do it effortlessly. Good Luck!!!
Fish Fry Recipe
Recipe Cuisine: Indian | Recipe Category : Side Dish / Apppetizer
Prep Time: 20 mins |Cook Time: 10 mins | Serves: 10 pieces |Author :Sharmila Kingsly
Cut and cleaned fish – 10pieces
Oil – ¼ cup
Chilli Powder – 5 tsp
Turmeric Powder – 2 tsp
Salt – 4 tsp
Fish Fry Masala – 2tsp(Optional)
1. Proper and even marinating of the fish is the first and foremost step of this recipe. Make a thin paste of the marination ingredients. Taste it. If you find anything lacking add chilli powder or salt to your preference. Dip the pieces into it and spread the mix evenly and thoroughly.(Note: Neither me nor my mom prefer the Fish Fry masalas found in stores. People who prefer the red-coloured fish fries served in hotels can go for it and can even add a little bit of red food colour to the marination mixture.)Leave it aside for 40-45 minutes. Ideally 1 hour would be better.
