I dont have to mention how special it will be to have a fish fry with rice in afternoon or dinner. The name of fish fry itself will make us drool .
For this recipe I have used Mathi (sardines) here. You can use any fish for frying.
Mathi – 15 nos
Clean the fish properly using salt and cut slits in between and keep aside.
Chillie powder - 3 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Ginger paste - 1/2 tsp
Garlic Paste - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 5 nos
Lime juice - 1/2
Salt – to taste
(green chillie – 1 no can be used if needed)
Grind all the masala ingredients to a paste in a grinder. with sufficeint water. paste the masala on the fish and marinate it for atleast 20-30 mins.
In a pan, put oil. Once hot, shallow fry the fish. You can garnish it with onion rings and curry leaves.
