Fish Fry

Fish  fry ( King Fish / Surmai Or Pomfret can be used )
This is my mom in laws super delicious and easy recipe

Ingredients :

King fish fillets cut to 1 inch in thickness ( Whole pomfret can also be used)
Marination : vinegar,salt,turmeric and chilly powder
Shallow fry : Rawa (sooji) and rice flour

Process:  Clean fish fillets and marinate it with 4-5 drops of vinegar,turmeric powder, salt and chilly powder to taste.You can also add little lemn juice.Salt should be more than usual.

Refrigerate it for 8 hours.Then take rawa and rice flour in a dish and mix it together.rice flour should be used in a very less quantity.Roll the fish fillets in this mixture so that it is coated properly on all sides with Flour.
Heat the pan and shallow fry fish till crisp brown.Vegetable oil or Parachute coconut oil can be used for frying fish.I use both oils mixed in equal quantities.It tastes good.

It takes 15 - 20 mins for king fish to cook thoroughly on low flame.
Note : If you use pomfret then clean it properly and apply the marination to the inside of the fish properly.It will taste bland if marination is not done properly on the inside.Also it takes more time to cook properlt than king fish.
