Fish is our favourite... Coming from deep south, Fish is not a rareity in our homes. Here is a recipe for a fish fry which is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Pomfret fish - 4 small (Cleaned and slit like the picture below)

Rice Powder - 2 tsp
Chilli Powder - 11/2 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Jeera Powder - 1 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste - 11/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Vinegar or Lime juice - 3tsp

Make a paste of all of the above ingrediants with water. Apply it on the fish. Ensure you rub it into the fish.
Marinate the fish for a couple of hours.

Heat oil in a pan, When oil is heated add the fish. one at a time. Sprinkle some curry leaves. Fry the fish on low flame. As thats when the flavour sweeps in. Keep the pan covered.  Turn the fish and cook on the otherside till its golden brown.

Serve with onions and lime.
