Fried Fish Masala

I was bored to make the usual side dishes for chappathi and tried this fish dish. It went really well with it. It is simple but has a little bit of oil in it as it requires frying the fish first and then sauteeing it with masala. Otherwise it is a finger licking one. I used king fish pieces to make this.

You need
  • Fish pieces  - 100 gm (bones removed and cut into small pieces)
  • Onion - 1 big
  • Tomato - 1 medium
  • Ginger - 1 small piece
  • Garlic - 2
  • Green chilli - 1
  • Chilli powder - 2 tsp + 1 tsp (for marinating) (see Note)
  • Coriander powder - 2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp + 1/2 tsp (for marinating)
  • Oil for sauteeing and frying fish
  • Salt to taste

  • Marinate the small fish pieces with chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt. Keep aside for 20 minutes. 
  • In a frying pan heat oil and fry the fish pieces.
  • Heat oil in a thick bottomed vessel
  • Add chopped ginger, garlic, green chilli and chopped onion
  • Saute until pink and transparent.
  • Add turmeric powder, chilli powder and coriander powder. Saute until the raw aroma leaves.
  • Add chopped tomato. Add salt to taste. (Remember you've marinated fish with salt)
  • Add the fried fish pieces. Stir fry on low flame for atleast 10 minutes (the longer the better)
  • Serve with chappathis
Note: Adjust your spices according to your spice levels
