Health benefits of eating fish:

  • They prevent heart diseases.
  • They are rich in iron, especially small fishes eaten with bones.
  • They are good for the pregnant women for fetal growth and brain development.
  • Consuming fish reduces the join pain and arthritis. 
Atleast twice a week , we have to include fish in our diet to get all these benefits.Lets switch over to the recipe.

Cooking Time : 30 min

  • Fish 500g
  • Red chilli powder 2 tsp

  • Cumin powder 1 tsp
  • Garlic paste 1/2 tsp

  • Let it sit for half an hour. we may refrigerate them also.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Reduce the flame to medium. 
  • Add five to six pieces of marinated fish at a time, depending upon the size of the frying pan and fry them for five minutes. 
  • Flip the fish pieces to cook other side. Fry both the sides to golden brown.
  • Drain the fried pieces from the oil and keep those pieces on the kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
  • Fry all the marinated fish pieces in the same way.
  • Now the crispy, spicy and the tasty fish fry is all ready to serve.
  • Garnish it and serve hot.

It goes well with:
  • Fish fry is the best side for the fish gravy rice.
  • we may use the ready made Fish Fry masala also. But that won't give the better flavor like home made masala.
