Fish Fry - South Indian Method

In India, my mother-in-law makes fish fry every alternate Sundays. Though cleaning the fish is a 'process', she does it very quickly (maybe practice) and makes these fries for appetizers. Lunch time during Sundays are awfully busy. Cooking for 6 people, 6 different ways was time consuming. But we had fun, as me and my co-sister would be joking all the time in the kitchen. times!

Fish Fry-South Indian Style

Fish is very good for health and few people consider fish as vegetarian(!?). As it is full of protein, if you are a non-vegetarian, you must consider adding more fish to your diet than meat or poultry.

Ingredients for Fish Fry, the South Indian Style

4 lengthwise cut fish pieces (any freshwater fish)
few curry leaves
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
Few coriander leaves
1 tsp coriander powder
1 chopped green chili
salt to taste
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp of lemon juice
1 tbspn of oil


Wash the fish in running water and using a tissue paper remove the moisture from the fish.

In a small bowl, add turmeric,coriander powder,chili powder,ginger garlic paste,chopped curry leaves,chopped coriander,green chilies, salt.

Add oil to this mixture so that we do not use oil while frying/grilling.

Add the lemon juice and mix well.

Now, apply this mixture to the fish so that this masala evenly coats the fish.

Leave it for 15 minutes.

In a Tawa/Grill, place the marinated fish and cook for 3 min, turn and cook for another 2 min till the fish is cooked. On the whole, after 7-8 min the fish is cooked and ready to eat.

Always cook it in a medium heat. Serve hot.
