  • Make a paste of turmeric powder, red chilly powder, kashmiri chilly powder and salt.
    Apply this paste on the fish. It should be well coated.

    Keep it aside for 1/2 hour so that the masala enters into the fish.
  • Heat oil for shallow frying in a non-stick pan. Place 3-4 pieces of fish without over crowding and shallow fry it.

    When one side is done, flip over the fish and fry the other side. Add curry leaves.
  • Drain excess oil and serve it hot with rice.

    You can also add ginger - garlic paste if you wish.. This will give an entirely different taste.
    You can increase or decrease the amount of chilly powder accordingly.
