Fish Fry Kerala style!

I don't know if I have ever mentioned this before, but my all time favorite comfort food (apart from icecream) is rice, moru and fish fry. So today I was in the mood to indulge and went and bought myself some fresh tilapia fillets. I fried 2 of them and have reserved the rest for a nice fish curry. Different people make fish fry differently, so if you feel that there are ways to improve this fry, please do let me know. Enough with the speech already, let's get frying!


  • 2 medium sized fish fillets, thoroughly cleaned with vinegar, salt and lime. Any fish can be used.
  • 2 teaspoons ginger garlic paste. If using fresh ginger and garlic, grind a quarter inch piece of ginger and 3 cloves of garlic. I used the ready made paste.
  • 2 teaspoons red chilly powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • Curry leaves-frying and garnish
  • 4 tablespoons oil


Marinate the fish with all the above ingredients except curry leaves and set aside for at least 30 minutes. In a saucepan, heat 4 tablespoons of oil. Once hot, add curry leaves and fry for 20 seconds. Add the marinated fish and fry each side for at least 3 minutes till light brown and crispy. Garnish with more curry leaves and serve hot with rice.

So, here's my lunch...

And a close up...

Do try it out and let me know how it turned out. Happy weekend and God bless!
