Fish Fry Recipe

Fish fry is one that we love at home for lunch. You may marinate the fish using the ingredients the previous night and fry it for lunch or dinner or do it 30-45 minutes in advance and add it to your lunch menu. A simple quick mix of readily available ingredients in your pantry can ensure a delicious lunch.

Ingredients for Fish Fry
Seer Fish(Surmai) - 500 gms (Sliced , washed and cleaned)
Kashmiri chilli powder - 2 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder (haldi) -1/2 tsp
Lime Juice - Juice of 1 lime
Garam masala powder - 3/4 tsp
Oil for shallow frying - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Water - 1 to 2 tbsp (as required)

Method for Making fish fry
1- Mix together the Kashmiri chilli powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder, garam masala powder, salt and lime juice. Add 1 or 2 tbsp of water(as required to make a thick paste).
2- Marinate the slices of surmai fish with this paste for 30 to 45 minutes.
3- Take a deep non-stick pan. Add the 2 tbsp oil in it. Lay out the marinated pieces of fish onto the pan(without overlapping). Cook on low to medium flame on one side for about 3 to 5 minutes. Turn it over and let fry for another 3 to 5 minutes on this side. Drain the excess oil, take out. Serve with onions and lemon wedges.
