Today we had bought – Pomfret and Sear fish and prepared a nice fish fry after many days.
Here’s how it’s done:
Ingredients: (For 4 fish slices)
7-8 tbl spn fine Rava/Rice flour
1 heaped tea spn chilli powder
1 and 1/2 heaped tea spn turmeric powder
2 tbl spn lemon juice or tamarind pulp (optional)
Salt to marinate
oil for frying
Wash and clean fish. Drain the water. Marinate with 1/2 of the turmeric powder and the chilli powder. Add salt and lemon juice, apply well over the fish. ( Add more turmeric if required as this removes the stink of the fish)
Marinate for 30 mins minimum.
Take rava in a plate. Add remaining turmeric powder and chilli powder. Mix well. Add more of the powders if required. The rava mix should appear slightly golden in color (due to turmeric).
Heat a tava and add oil on it. Keep on low heat. Take a fish slice and roll in the rava mix, so that all the sides are covered well with the rava.
Made some Tilapia and Prawn (with tails on!) fries
