Keralan Fish Fry

Keralan Fish Fry
Hope you all are getting ready to enjoy your weekends..For me this weekend is going to be a energetic and satisfied one,because tomorrow we have a function in our office and we have planned to open a food stall over there..We are going to keep all kinds of yummy stuffs and the money from that is going to a local charity(really a happy one right!!)..I am really excited about that and i am busy preparing yummy brownies for that stall...Will post all the pictures of that wait for that..

Now coming back to today’s recipe.....Fish is one of the staple food in kerala and they like to fry their fish a lot...This recipe is one of the typical keralan dish...I used coconut oil to fry the fish like the keralan do..but you can use any oil as you like.. Hope you all will give this a try and let me know what you think..


Seer Fish Steaks( Any Fish fillets)- 4 piece
Coconut oil-5 tblspn

First Marinate:

Turmeric powder-1 tsp
Lemon juice-2 tsp
Salt –1 tsp

Second Marinate:

Red chilli powder-1 tblspn
Ginger Garlic Paste-1 tblspn
Coriander powder-1 tblspn
Pepper-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Lemon juice-2 tblspn


Take the fish fillets and marinate it with salt,turmeric and lemon juice.

In a mixing bowl mix chilli powder,coriander powder,ginger garlic paste,pepper,salt and lemon juice together and form a thick paste..If it is too thick you can add a little water to this..

Now apply this paste to the marinating fish fillets and let it rest for 30 min.

Heat coconut oil in a tawa and fry the fish on both sides till golden and completely cooked through.

Garnish it with onion rings and lemon juice..

Serve with rice..


All ur ingrediants for fish

mix all other ingrediants given in second marinate list...Squeeze in some lemon juice and mix well...
Apply this to fish fillets

Fry in oil on one side till it feels cooked

Flip it and cook on other side too...

Good to see your authentic recipes out here..Nice fish fry..But being from Kerala, just thought would tell you it's not Keralan but known as Keralite or Malayalee.. :)

My masala comes apart while frying. how to avoid this?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymous Fry it on low flame with very little oil, so your masala will not come out
