Kerala Fish Fry

Kerala Fish Fry

Today's recipe is a basic Kerala fish fry. Fish fry is something that everyone makes and there is not much to blog about. But since this space features some of my favorites, I cannot skip off this all time favorite comfort food. We have it almost once or twice a week and every time, make it with the excuse that I am not in a mood for elaborate cooking :). It is quick and simple and perfect side dish for rice.You can use any kind of fish.Use coconut oil and curry leaves to get the perfect taste of Kerala fish fry.

Fish- 1 lb
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/4 tsp
Fenugreek powder- a pinch
Ginger garlic paste-1 tsp
Rice flour- 1/2 tsp (optional)
salt to taste
Coconut oil for frying
Curry leaves- 2 springs
Whole garlic crushed-2

Clean fish and squeeze some lemon juice,rub on the fish and then give a final rinse. Make a few gashes on the fish and keep aside.
Mix chilly powder, turmeric powder,pepper powder,fenugreek powder, rice flour,ginger garlic paste and salt. Sprinkle little water and make a smooth paste. You can add a few drops or vinegar or lemon juice instead of water to make a paste. Apply this on the fish and inside the cavities and let it  marinate for three or four minutes.
Heat coconut oil in a pan and add curry leaves and crushed garlic (take whole garlic and smash one time with the back of a knife). Rotate the pan just for once and then place the fish.Fry in medium flame.After two minute gently move the garlic to the edge of the pan or take it out of the pan. Let the fish  get browned for two minutes on one side and then flip over and fry the other side till it is done. Serve warm with rice.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy!
