Spicy Fish fry



This is a spicy fish fry which my family enjoys every time it is made at home. It goes well with rice and  fish curry. There is no doubt that these trio complement each other so well and is indispensable part of the lunch menu back home in Kerala.The marinade I have used has a unique south Indian blend of spices and you can increase or decrease the amount of spices to suit your taste. What I love in this fish fry is the blend of flavors of coconut oil,curry leaves and shallots.I have used Mackerel fish for this fish fry.

Ingredients
Mackerel fish- 4
Shallots 2-3 small
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Garlic- 2 pods
Green chilly- 2
Dry Red Chilly-3
Pepper whole- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Lemon juice- 1/2 tsp

Curry leaves one spring
Salt to taste-
Coconut Oil for frying

Place all ingredients into a mixer and blend into a smooth fine paste.
Cut and clean fish and marinate with this paste and keep aside for fifteen minutes. Shallow fry in coconut oil. Flip over the other side( after 2-3 three minutes in medium flame depending on the size of the fish) when spices gets browned up and fried.

Try this..

Hope you will all enjoy..
