Fish Fry

Here is a simple fish fry recipe. Marinate the fish fillets with spices, shallow fry in oil and serve with onions, chillis and seasoning. This can be served as an appetizer or a side dish for biryanis/kichidis/pulaos. I have used tilapia fish fillets and can be replaced with any kind of fish.


  1. Fish fillets - 1 lb
  2. Salt - as required
  3. Chilli powder - as required
  4. Garam masala - 1 tsp
  5. Coriander seeds / Dhaniya powder - 1 tsp
  6. Lemon juice - 1 tsp
  7. Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
  8. Besan flour - 1/4 cup
  9. Ginger Garlic (GG) paste - 1 tsp
  10. Oil - 4 tsps and more for shallow frying
  11. Onion - 1 (sliced lengthwise)
  12. Green chillies - 3 ( or as required, sliced lengthwise)
  13. Popu mix (Mustard seeds, cumin seeds) - 1 tsp


  1. Clean and cut the fish fillets into pieces of 1/2" thickness.
  2. Marinate the fish with turmeric, salt, chilli powder, garam masala powder, dhaniya powder, GG paste, besan flour and lemon juice for 1 hour.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and fry the fish pieces till they turn brown in color. Flip carefully to other side and fry for another 2-3mins. Add oil as required and adjust the heat to avoid over frying the fish.
  4. Heat 1tsp of oil and fry the popu mix, onions and chillis. Add salt as required. Garnish this on top of fish pieces. This step is optional.
