Spicy Garlic Fish Fry / Garlic pepper Fish Fry / பூண்டு மிளகு மீன் வறுவல்

Try this garlic flavored, spicy fish fry as a starter / main course; which I learnt from my friend Preethi Jothivel.

Though I used to prepare fish fry often; this base ingredient is different with all flavorful ingredients like garlic, pepper & fennel!.  So I want to give it a try!  Yummy!

Thank you Preethi for sharing the recipe!

Let's check the recipe now,

Recipe for Garlic Fish Fry
Recipe type: Main course
Cuisine:  South Indian 
Serves: 4  to 6 (approximately)

Ingredients:
Fish - 2 to 3 
Salt - to taste
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Coconut oil / Vegetable oil - 2 to 3 tbsp
To grind:
Garlic - 6 to 8
Pepper - 2 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - ½ tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Tamarind paste / lemon juice - 2 tsp



Directions:
Wash and clean the fish pieces; make incisions and pat dry.

Grind together garlic, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, fennel seeds, pepper, tamarind extract / lemon juice, salt and just enough water to make fine thick paste.

Apply this masala on both sides of the fish; allow to marinate for more than a hour.

Before frying, just add little corn flour over fish and apply it.

Heat oil in a flat bottom pan, add some curry leaves and place the fish.

Turn the fish in between to cook both sides evenly.(Do this in a medium flame)

Serve hot as a starter or accompaniment to rice with fish curry.


Note:
This recipe is suitable for any kind of fish.

You can adjust the amount of pepper and red chilli powder according to your taste.

Adding curry leaves is optional but I preferred to add because it gives a nice flavor to the fish

Serve hot as a starter or accompaniment to rice with fish curry (Meen kulambu); even with rasam it is delicious!
