Fish Fry Recipe


  • Any river fish fillets 750 gm
  • Chili powder 2-3 tsp
  • Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Juice of one small lemon
  • Green chilies, slit, 8-10
  • Curry leaves 2-3 sprigs
  • Garam masala powder
  • Fresh coriander leaves, washed and finely chopped, 2 bunches
  • Oil to shallow fry


Clean and wash the fish fillets.   Add the turmeric powder, chili powder, salt to taste, and lemon juice to the fish fillets and toss thoroughly.  Set aside for a minimum of one-half hour preferably in the refrigerator.

Heat a pan (tawa) on medium heat.  Add three to four tablespoons of oil.  Add a few of the curry leaves.  Add  three to four fish fillets and cook on medium heat till crisp.  Add one or two of the slit green chilies.  Flip and cook on the other side till crisp.  Sprinkle a pinch of the garam masala and a few chopped coriander leaves and cook for a few more seconds.  Drain and transfer onto an absorbent paper along with the curry leaves and green chilies.  Repeat the process for the remaining fish fillets.  Serve hot garnished with onion rings and lemon wedges.
