Spicy Fried Fish

Steamed fish (steamed white pompret and steamed cod fish) is far more healthier compared to fried fish. But lets admit that we can't eat steamed fish day in day out. So switch to a quality oil and make frying healthy too. Otherwise opt for pan frying over non stick pan, grill in the oven or on a non stick portable grill. Decide which you prefer and try this spicy fried fish - marinated with coriander, fennel, cumin and fish curry powder and curry leaves. Fried/grilled for a crispy outer layer over the tenderness of the fish.   

400g Kurau/Threadfin fish - cut into chunk or bite pieces
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp fennel powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp fish curry powder
1 tsp plain chilli powder
1/2 tbsp lemon/lime juice
3 sprigs curry leaves - shredded
Salt for taste
oil for frying

Marinated fish with all the ingredients.
Keep aside/leave in the fridge for about 1 to 2 hours.
Bring out and deep fry or grill.
