There are days when I can go on and go on about a recipe, but for some I can't seem to write much as its such a easy and simple recipe.
This is one such recipe, another quick and simple fish fry.
It's a quick simple dish I made on a weekend night after getting fish from the grocery store! Instead of the regular masala...I made this quick masala by grinding together all the ingredients and marinating the fish for an hour or less. Then shallow fried it with some oil. I didn't add an extra onions to it, you can surely add them towards the end to keep them crunchy.
We ate this as a side dish along with rasam and rice...My kids don't have any problem eating any non-veg masala dish...So I had a fun night without any fuss at dinner that day
1 lb tilapia fish fillets, cut into pieces
Masala: (to be ground to paste with some water)
1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
1 tbsp gus gus
1 tbsp grated coconut
1/2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 anise star petal
2 pieces cinamon stick
2 elaichi, cardamom pods
1 marble sized tamarind (can be substituted with lemon juice or amchoor powder)
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp chilli powder
pinch of turmeric
salt to taste
oil for shallow fry
Wash the fillets with water and apply the ground masala paste. Let them marinate for about 1/2 hour to 1 hour.
Heat pan with oil. Fry the fish on both sides till brown.
Add chopped onions if you wish!
Serve with rice and rasam. Enjoy!!!
