I love fish like anything else.. Can skip my lunch and dinner only for having fish fry :) Well this is one among my favourites. Fish are less in fat and high in proteins.

Salt to taste.


1 Onion.

1 Tomato.

5 Kashmiri chillies.

1 tsp Tamarind extract.

1/4 tsp Methi pd.

1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste.



1 tbsp Coconut oil.

1 Onion.

Curry leaves.


Marinate the fish and allow to rest for half an hour. Grind the ingredients for masala given above. Now take a frying pan, add oil and fry the fishes till cooked on both the sides. Once done place them on plates. In same pan, add extra oil and add onions, curry leaves. Fry till the onions turn brown. Now add the grinding paste and fry well till the raw smell disappears. Put little water and bring them to boil. Season with salt. Place the fried fish carfully and turn so that all the masala are well coated. Once it turns into semi dry consistency, remove and serve hot hot.
