Fish Fry

Fish fry can be made in a jiffy. Feeling bored or lazy to cook a grand meal. Want to eat something spciy with rice and dal, fish fry is a great accompaniment. I have made the Kerala fish fry with minimal masala and easy prepare. You can take white or black Promfret, King fish or any kind of thick fleshy fish.

Medium slices of Black Promfret – 4-6 pieces
1 teaspoon red chilly powder
1/3 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper powder
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon lime juice
Oil for frying


  • Mix together all the powder with lime juice, salt and a little water to make it a paste.
  • Marinate the fish with the masala paste for around 20 minutes.
  • Take a deep pan and add around 4 to 5 tablespoon oil and shallow fry the fish pieces till done.
  • Serve alongside with onion salad, dal and piping hot steam rice.

Tip: Cover and cook the fish while frying.
