Fish fry (method 1) | Easy fish fry recipes

 When compared to all types non-veg foods, fish seems to have the most nutritious and health benefits. Consuming fish at least twice a week is found to reduce the risk of certain diseases from childhood asthma to prostate cancer. Fishes are the richest source of omega -3 fatty acid,the most predominant compound required for brain development. They are also found to reduce the risk of heart diseases.


Fish - 10 pieces
Corn flour -3 tsp
Rice flour -2 tsp
Kashmiri chilli powder -4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Lemon juice -1 tsp
Curd -2 tbsp
Salt -1 and half tsp
Soy sauce -1/2 tsp
Oil to fry

Variety of fish used:

Here I used Butter fish (paarai meen). In this method I also fry Black pomfret (vavaal), Seer fish (vanjaram) not tried in any other varieties. But you can choose the fish variety of your taste and method is same,but take care that fish to be cut in thin cylindrical slices...which would make frying easy and even.


  1. Clean the fish : First wash the fish about 5 to 6 times in water. Add the turmeric powder, salt and mix or rub well and leave aside for about 10 minutes and then just wash only for about 2 times.
  2. Add all the above given ingredients (except oil) to a blender and give 3 to 4 pulse. Its just to mix all the ingredients.
  3. Marinate the fish with this paste on both sides and leave it aside for about 2 hours.
  4. Heat a flat pan/flat skillet and add required oil to fry. The oil should cover till half of the fish.
  5. Leave for about 2 minutes in medium flame till one side gets cooked, then turn the other side to fry.

Note/tips :
  • Grinding in blender is just to get masalas get mixed evenly,instead using spoon or hand.
  • Instead of ginger- garlic paste you can also use whole ginger and garlic pods,if you are grinding the masalas.
  • To avoid masalas coming out while frying....... Take care not to apply more masalas over the fish,just apply a coating.
  • while frying wait for at least a minute to turn the fish for frying. Because continuous turning will make the masalas dropping out.
  • When making the marinated fish to dry, take care to turn other side after an hour. You can do the same process keeping in freezer instead of room outside.
  • Do not use food color at any cost to give the eye catching colors as they are not safe to get digested and absorbed.
