Kerala Fish Fry

Kerala Fish Fry. What a fish wonder (Tuna Cutlets, Hong Kong Steam Fish & Stingray Spicy Sauce) and if we are talking about frying this Kerala fish fry, so easy. Really.  I mean what are ready made spices for? Ready made spice powders you can easily buy and? Let's get frying. I say none further. Fish marinated alongside coriander powder, fennel powder, cumin powder, fish curry powder, lime juice and curry leaves, and fried till  crispy on the outside and juicy inside. Of course, Kerala Fish Fry, like I have already told is the Kerala fish wonder. Simple irresistibly when paired with rice and other side dishes (Chilli Soy Fish, Fried Kembung Assam Sauce, Assam Curry Fish & Malaysian Indian Fish Curry). Of course, Kerala style meaningfully.  

400g Kurau/Threadfin fish - cut into chunk or bite pieces
1/2 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp fennel powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder

1 tsp plain chilli powder
1/2 tbsp lemon/lime juice
3 sprigs curry leaves - shredded
Salt for taste
Oil for frying
