This is how we at home fry the fish in the traditional way.There are many other versions of the same but the easy and traditional way is as follows.
|Chilly Powder||1 Tsp|
|Turmeric Powder||¼ Tbsp|
|Coconut Oil||To fry|
|Curry Leaves||2 Strings|
Clean the fish. Wash thoroughly with salt (preferrably rock salt). Squeeze out all the water from the fish. Mix the powders and salt with water and apply over the fish. Keep aside for atleast 10 min. Shallow fry in coconut oil. When 75% cooked add curry leaves to the pan. Turn over and cook both sides again. Remove from heat when cooked and serve.
Note: Always try to use coconut oil while cooking any seafood. It enhances the taste as well as gives you the feeling of Ammas kitchen.
