Fish Fry

Hi Everyone, Back after a looong break but all pumped up and ready to bounce back. This time its Fish fry Indian style. I personally feel too many spices spoil the taste of the fish. It should have a very flavorful but subtle taste. This is maybe one of the quickest recipes you can make.

You can use pretty much any fish and although fresh is good you can make this with frozen fish as well.


Fish fillets : 1 pound (around 4 nos) I use Tilapia or Cod but you could use any fish
Red Chili powder : 1- 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp


Wash the fish well. pat dry. Mix in all the remaining ingredients and marinate for half hour in the refrigerator.Heat a pan at medium heat and add 4 tblspns of oil. Now add the fish fillets. Let cook till golden brown on one side and then flip and cook on the other side. squeeze some fresh lemon juice on the fillets and serve hot. Its that simple and may I add DELICIOUS!
