Meen varuthathu/Plain Fish fry

Clean the fish thoroughly with lotsa of water. Then clean with 1 tbsp of salt and 1 tbsp of turmeric powder. Keep it aside for 5 mintues and once again wash the fish thoroughly with water. I use gallons and gallons of water to clean fish till the last dirt is removed.

Fish fry masala:

Mix 1 tbsp of turmeric powder, 2 tbsp of chilly powder, 3 tbsp of coriander seed powder (malli powder) and 1 ½ tbsp of salt. Mix these powder’s well.

How to prepare fish fry:

Apply this powder onto the cleaned fish all over. Keep aside for sometime to marinate.

In a frying pan, pour enough quantity of oil. Put these masala applied fish onto the hot oil. Simmer the burner otherwise the skin get charred and hard. Then after sometime, turn the fish to the other side. Remove once it is done.

It tastes yum with curd rice, plain rice. Enjoy…Meen varuthathu….
