Crispy Fried Fish

Just thought of trying this fried fish recipe.Nothing great just a simple change i made and was a nice refreshing new change.I've heard that Mangaloreans and Maharashtrians do their fried fish dipped in semolina.This makes the fish a nice crispy coating and a tender insides.

To make this you need

Fish 2 numbers cleaned and washed with gashes (any kind,I;ve used Red snapper in the picture)

To make the marinade:
Cumin seed powder 1/4 tsp
Pepper Powder 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder a pinch
Salt to taste
Coriander powder 1/2 tsp
Oil to mix the above into a smooth paste

To dip : a mixture of equal parts of rice flour and semolina with a pinch of salt(optional)

- Rub the marinade into the fish and leave it in the refrigerator for a few hours(or atleast half hour)
- Heat the oil to fry(deep/shallow) and just before frying the fish, dip it into the rice flour + semolina mix.
- Fry until golden brown on both sides.
- Serve hot with rice or as it is!I would prefer to have a bowl of rasam rice and fried fish!perfect comfort food!
