Somethings just can't be same or anywhere near same if not fried. This is one of those recipes.
Spicy Fried Fish
2 Bolti fish ( 800-900gms each)*
3 tbsp Red Chilly powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp Coriander powder
1 tbsp cumin powder
1/2 tbsp salt
1 lemon (juice)
* Bolti is fresh water fish. But any white flesh fish should work.It needs to be cut into 3-4 pieces.
Mix salt, red chilly powder, turmeric, coriander powder and cumin powder with juice of the lemon. If you are bold enough to taste the paste raw, make sure its slightly salter than you would like to eat. Under seasoned fish is a big dissapointment.
Throughly massage the fish with the spices and leave it for marination for 5 hrs ( overnight is the best ).
