This is a simple fish fry but it taste amazing. The taste of this dish depends on the fish you use. Use pomfret fish for best taste. You can use any white fleshed fish as well. I was able to get a fish similar to pomfret and hubby loved this so much. The main flavour for this is from curry leaves, so add a good amount of it in.
For getting perfect fish fry,
1)Use best fish you can afford.
2)Use the mentioned masalas, dont over do with the spices.
3)use good amount of lemon juice or vinegar
4)Dont deep fry, just pan fry it with little oil.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
