Fish fry

This is the simple method of frying any type of fish.

Wash and clean the fish and make long, shallow cuts at intervals along its length. Grind to a paste, chilli powder, pepper powder and shallots. To this masala, add salt and marinate the fish with it. Heat oil in a thick-bottommed tawa and deep-fry the fish, turning them alternatively on both sides to ensure that it is properly fried.
