Crispy Fried Fish

Indian non-vegetarian meal is incomplete without a Masala Fish Fry. it’s is a very common and staple dish.A nice spicy fish fry can be eaten on its own as an appetizer or starter or goes well with rice too. There are various ways of preparing the fish fry using different ingredients and spices to individual taste.The fried fish would taste better if marinated and left for long or can be cooked as soon as it’s coated with marination.Fishes are easy and quick to cook, packed with good amount of protein and low in fat.Check my Pan fried recipe  Pan Fried Tilapia
