Fish Masala


Fish Masala
Today I am sharing a spicy fish masala. It is fried fish simmered in a spicy and aromatic onion gravy.It is quick recipe and is a perfect with any meaty fish the best is king fish and cat fish. Here I have used Indian mackerel/Ayala.

Ingredients
1)Ayala/ Fish- 2 whole
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly Powder- 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

2)For the Masala
Onion sliced- 3 medium
Ginger- garlic chopped- 3 tbs
Tomatoes-2
Chilly powder- 1/3 tsp
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Fennel powder- 1 tsp
Clove powder- 1/3 tsp
Fenugreek powder- 1/3 tsp
Curry leaves- a few




Clean fish and cut gashes. Mix all ingredients listed under (1) except oil into a smooth paste and marinate the fish and keep aside for ten minutes. Heat two to three tsp of oil and fry the fish till it is cooked. Keep the fried fish aside.
In the same pan saute onions,ginger,garlic and curry leaves. Saute till it is golden brown. Add tomatoes and fry till it becomes soft and mushy and oil separates. Add chilly powder, turmeric powder,fennel powder, fenugreek powder and clove powder listed under (2) and saute for a minute. Sprinkle a few drops of water and mix. Scoop out half of the masala from the pan and evenly spread the rest and place the fish on top. Now spread the rest of the masala on top of the fish, cover and cook in low flame for about three minute. You can turn over the fish in between. You can drizzle lemon juice just before serving.

Try this...
Hope you will all enjoy.
