For all Fishtarians out there, this one is Mum’s fish fry (recd chilli masala) which is lip-smacking!
Try it out 🙂

  • Fish of your choice – 2 pieces
  • Red chilli powder – 2 tsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp
  • Vinegar – enough to mix the red chilli powder and salt
  • Garlic crushed – 2-3  cloves (optional)
  • Oil to shallow fry
  • You can use any fish of your choice. Here I have used Tilapia.
  • Wash the fish thoroughly.
  • Mix the red chilli powder and salt with enough vinegar to make a paste.
  • Do not add water.
  • (The salt and red chilli powder ratio is always 1:2)
  • Apply the paste to the fish and allow to marinate for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a tava and shallow fry the fish on both sides until cooked.
  • Fish takes lesser time to cook, about 10 minutes.
  • Serve hot with rice or roti.
