Preparation Method: Chettinad Fish Fry Recipe
Wash the king fish with water and let it dry for few minutes.
Now cut the fish fillets and make the pieces of normal size.
Place the pan on heat source and add curry leaves, mustard seeds and black peppercorns in the pan. Mix the ingredients well and heat for some time. Now add coriander seeds, fennel, cumin, ginger and dry roast garlic in the pan. Mix the ingredients well to make a uniform paste.
Now pound this mixture in a mortar. Put some water, oil and salt. Then pestle them in mortar.
Add tamarind extract, salt, chili powder, turmeric powder and chopped tomato in above mixture.
Make a pulp of all these ingredients and apply this pulp over pieces of fish.
Take the corn flour and sprinkle it on the surface of fish. The key benefit of corn flour is that it helps the masala to glue to surface of fish pieces firmly. Now place the fish pieces in the fridge for 25 minutes.
Place a pan over heat source and pour some oil in the pan. Fry the pieces of fish and serve hot.
