Fish Fry [South Indian Style]

Pomfret (Vavval) Fry


Pomfret Slices (Vavval)                  4
Red Chilli Powder                            1 tbsp
Coriander Powder                           2 tsp
Turmeric  Powder                           ½ tsp
Ginger & Garlic Paste                     1 tsp
Lemon Juice                                     2 tsp
Pepper powder                                 ¼ tsp
Salt                                                     as needed
Gingelly Oil                                      as needed for frying


Clean and wash the fish real good, finally add ¼ tsp of  turmeric powder and wash it once.

[My mom will wash the fish in chatty with sea salt which will remove the scales, since I don’t have it here, I just use the regular pan to wash the fish]

Now mix all the masala except the oil and apply it on the fish, cover it and let it marinate for 30 min’s.

Heat the griddle, add 1 tsp of oil and then the fish, cook it on both sides evenly. Make sure the stove is in medium flame.

I use gingelly oil for fish fry and gravies which is good for your health and wonderful taste.
You can very well use sunflower oil.

Now yummy fish fry is ready to be served.
