Kerala Style Fish Fry | Pomfret Fry

My days have become so hectic and tiring that the sheer thought of escaping to my Mom's place, makes me happy. Yes the situations are tough at home front so after my duties are done towards my home front I want a good break. In between I have learnt a new fish fry from my Keralite cook who was with us for few days. Needless to say I loved it ! If you are looking for other variety of fish fry recipes then have a look at 

3 medium size White Pomfrets, cleaned
2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste 
2 tbsp Red chili powder
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Freshly ground Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Black pepper powder
Handful of coriander and mint leaves
2-3 Sesame seeds
Oil for shallow frying


Take the pomfrets, clean thoroughly and make incisions across the fish on both sides about one inch apart. 

Make a slurry-like marinade of the ginger-garlic paste, chili , pepper powder, lemon juice, turmeric powder, throw in some coriander and mint leaves and salt.

 Marinate the fish in this paste for atleast 1/2 hour. Take the fish and coat it with the sesame seeds evenly.

 Heat oil in a flat pan and shallow fry the fish. Now carefully turn the pomfret to the other side and fry evenly. Serve this crispy fried fish with some onions and lemon wedges.
