Chettinad Fish Fry

Chettinad Fish Fry

Fish fry is my all time favorite comfort food. We make simple fish fry often, but the Chettinadu fish masala is flavorful and tasty. Started loving this spicy and tempting fish fry. I used king fish but you can use any kind of fish or prawns for this recipe.

King Fish- 4 slices
Pearl onion-2-3
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Ginger - 1 small piece
Garlic-3 pods
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/4 tsp
Fennel seeds- 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds- 1/4 tsp
Rice flour- 1/2 tsp (optional)
salt to taste
lemon juice- 1/2
oil for frying

Clean fish and squeeze some lemon juice,rub on the fish and then give a final rinse.

Make a paste of shallot, ginger, garlic,cumin seed and fennel seeds. Into this mix chilly powder, turmeric powder,pepper powder and salt. Sprinkle little water and make a smooth paste. Apply this on the fish let it  marinate for 2 hours in refrigerator or at least half an hour. Just before frying sprinkle lemon juice and dust with rice flour.

Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves. if you like the flavor. Place the fish.Fry in medium flame.After three minute gently flip over and fry the other side till it is done. Serve warm with rice.
