Instructions
  1. • Clean fish and wash it well by rubbing with salt.
  2. • In a mixing bowl, add every ingredient under marination. Sprinkle little water to make it as a paste consistency.
  3. • Then add the fish to it and mix well. Make sure each piece is coated well with the masalas. Marinate for 20- 30 minutes.
  4. • Heat oil in a pan. I used non-stick pan and toast the fish until the fish turns golden red in color and turn and toast the other side too. It approximately takes 8-10 minutes. You can deep fry too.
