  • 8 Pieces Fish (cut into slices)
  • 2 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 2 tsp Coriander Powder

How to make Fish Fry

  • Take a bowl and add everything mentioned above except fish, Corn Flour and oil. Add enough water to make a paste.
  • Apply paste on the both the sides of the fish pieces.Let it marinate for at least 20 mins.
  • Before frying, in a plate corn corn flour. Place the fish pieces and coat with corn flour. The coating need not be thick. Let the pieces rest on another plate for 5 minutes.
  • Marinated fish can be either deep fried or roasted over a tawa. I prefer roasting over tawa. Heat a tawa and spread a tbsp of oil all over it. The tawa should be hot. Only then the masala will stick to the fish.
  • When the tawa is hot, place the pieces and drizzle some oil over it. Cook for 1 min on one side and then flip it.
  • Cook it for another 1 min and reduce the flame to medium. Roast it for a min on both sides and transfer to a serving plate.
  • Spicy and Crispy fish fry is ready to be served.


  • The tawa should be hot, when you place the fish over it. Only then the masala will stick to the fish.
  • Adjust Spice level according to your taste preferences.
  • You can use the same masala with any other fish.
