Meen Porichathu / King Fish or Vanjaram Fry

This is a very simple fish fry with not many ingredients. Simple mix, marinate and fry. Yummy and crispy fish fry on your plate. This is amma's recipe ad we follow the same for every fish and I would say that this is a no fail recipe. After mixing and coating the fish with the marinade, amma generally refrigerates the fish till use, says that the flavor intensifies when done so. I follow her recipe to the core and hence you can try the same or skip if not needed. In both the cases, marination for 1-2 hrs is an important step.

~*What U Need*~
Vanjaram / King Fish pieces - 6

For the Masala
Red Chilli powder - 3 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Jeera / Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder - a big pinch
Ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Oil to fry

How I Made it:
Clean the fish well. Mix all the ingredients from the masala section. Coat this masala on the fish pieces evenly. Marinate for 1-2 hours.
Deep fry in oil till evenly brown on all sides. Remove excess oil by placing on tissue paper.

Serve hot with white rice / fish biryani.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
