Spicy and tangy Fish fry - Mangalorean style

One more recipe for all my friends!!

Fish fry is my favorite dish, I learned this recipe from my mom and she makes this dish so delicious that fried fish would vanish from the plate the minute she removes it from the pan. This is a mangalorean specialty recipe.

You can use any fish of your choice may be king fish steak or fish fillets.


1 Spanish Mackerel cut into small pieces/king fish
3 tsp kashmiri red chilly powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 lemon
1/4 cup sooji/semolina/rava
Salt to taste


 In a mixing bowl, mix chilly powder, turmeric, ginger-garlic paste and salt, squeeze 1 full lemon juice and make a thick paste(do not add water to this masala) apply masala nicely to your fish and let it marinate for at least an hour ( you can also marinate the fish over night). Heat sufficient oil in a non stick pan, coat fish with sooji on both sides and shallow fry on a medium heat.

Fish fry goes great with plain rice and dal fry or you can eat it like a appetizer.
