Pepper Fish Masala





Pepper Fish Masala is a simple fish preparation which can be served as a side dish for steamed rice or masala rice. It is fried fish  sauteed in masala gravy till completely dried up.It is flavorful with caramelized onion, roasted coconut and sesame seeds. I have added a little of garam masala., but  it is optional.You can use any kind of fish..here I have used King fish.

Ingredients
Fish - 1 lb
Onions- 2 medium
Tomatoes-1 medium
Ginger- 2 inch thick
Sesame seeds  - 2 tsp
Coconut grated- 1/3 cup
chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1 tsp
turmeric- 1/3 tsp
coriander  powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice-1/2 lemon
coriander leaves
Salt to taste
oil for frying


Marinate fish pieces with turmeric,salt, half of the pepper powder and lemon juice. Keep aside  for ten minutes and then fry them till cooked and golden brown . Use boneless bite size pieces .
Roast sesame seeds and coconut till browned up and make it into a fine powder.

In the same pan in which you fried fish add ginger and curry leaves  and saute till the raw flavor disappears.Saute onions till golden brown and add tomatoes and saute till tomatoes get soft. Add chilly powder, coriander powder, rest of pepper powder, garam masala and salt to taste. Roast the spice powders in a low flame for a few seconds.

 Add three to four  tsp of water and slide in the fried fish and close the lid for a minute. Stir till completely dried up and sprinkle the sesame and coconut powder and garnish  with coriander leaves.
