  • Recipe Ingredients list4 fish steak pieces (King fish or pomfret work well) ½ tsp of red chilli powder ½ tsp of black pepper powder 1 tsp of minced garlic (3-4 flakes) 1 tsp of grated ginger (a 1" piece) 1 tsp of vinegar or lime juice 2 tsp of shallots (small onions), crushed, optional ¼ tsp of turmeric powder A few curry leaves Salt to taste Oil for frying (I use coconut oil)



Cut and clean the fish pieces. I buy the fish steaks cut into the right shape so it makes preparation really simple Let the cleaned fish drain in a colander placed inside the sink (or another vessel if you wish). We need the fish to be as dry as possible before slathering in the marinade To prepare the marinade, there are two options: You can add all the ingredients into a spice grinder and grind to a paste. If you are using readymade ginger garlic paste (I don't recommend this, freshly made paste is better for this recipe), then you can just mix everything in a bowl If the paste is too thick, add a teaspoon of water. The marinade should be a thick paste and not watery; with this proportion of ingredients, I usually don't need to add any water Using your fingers, generously slather the marinade all over the fish pieces Plate in a bowl or plate, cover and set aside for 30 minutes. You can leave it overnight in the refrigerator if you don't intend to cook it immediately When ready to fry the fish, heat oil in a pan until it almost begins to smoke. We always pan fry the fish with just enough to cover the fish halfway and that works great Once the oil is hot enough, gently place the fish pieces into the oil Keep flame at medium and cover the pan while frying to prevent the spluttering oil and marinade getting all over you and the stove The moisture from the fish and the heat from the oil will fry-steam the fish in this method Once the first side of the fish is a dark golden brown, gently flip over and keep covered until the other side is cooked Needless to say, you must not allow the fish to overlap while cooking. Serve fish fry hot with sliced onions and lime wedges
