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)

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

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.

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!
