I never tried this fish, but it has become one of my favourite now. Hubby's friend recommended this and it was very tasty. Try it out.
Promfret fish (Vavval meen) - 2, medium sized
Chilli powder - 2 tablespoons
Coriander powder - 1 tablespoon
Cumin powder - 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice - 1 tablespoon
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Curry leaves - few
Salt to taste
Oil as required for shallow frying.
Mix chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, lemon juice, ginger garlic paste, curry leaves, salt to taste and 1 tablespoon of oil.
Sprinkle little water to make it a thick paste.
Clean fish and apply this paste evenly on all sides and marinate for 2-3 hours.
Heat a flat pan, apply little oil.
Once it is hot, shallow-fry the fish both sides until they are crispy.
Few drops of oil can be added while frying, if you feel it is too dry.
