Prep. Time → 10 min
Cook Time → 30 min
1. Clean and pat dry the cleaned fish using a kitchen tissue.
Whole steaks or cut depending on the kind of fish you are using.
Make shallow cut marks about 1 inch apart on both sides of large pieces to make sure the marinade seeps through.
Make a fine paste of all ingredients using either oil or bit of water.Apply the masala paste on the fish pieces one by one.
Keep the marinated fish pieces for 1/2 hour to 1 hour in refrigerator.
Pour required coconut oil (it will enhance the authentic taste) and when its hot tilt the tawa/pan in such a way that oil gets spread evenly in the tawa/pan.
Shallow fry the fish on medium heat with curry leaves; close it with a lid to avoid any spluttering out due to the moisture content on the fish and the marinade.
Flip the fish pieces carefully after 2-3 mins.
Pour little bit of oil over all the fish pieces and reduce the flame to low and fry for another 5 minutes.
Once crisp,remove from heat. Serve hot with rice and Enjoy!
