|Chettinad Fish Fry|
Cinnamon-a very small bit/piece
Red chillies-2 to 3
(Cool the above ingredients,put this in a mixi/blender jar along with onion,garlic,turmeric powder & salt.Grind them to a smooth thick paste.If water need to run the blender add very little water while grinding)
Boneless fish fillets cut into small pieces-8
(I used Tilapia fish)
Salt to taste
Besan or Maida-1tsp
(I used besan)
Oil-to deep fry
Clean & pat dry the fish,prick with a fork on all sides & keep it aside.
Take the ground paste in a plate add the besan & rice flour,mix it well.
Apply this mixture to fish pieces,make sure the masala penetrates inside the fish well.
Marinate the fish for at least 1 hour,heat oil in a kadai/pan.Deep fry these fishes in medium high flame till its golden brown & crisp on all sides.
Place the fried fish on a kitchen paper to remove excess oil & serve them with some lemon wedges.
Adding besan & rice flour is to give a nice crisp fried fish & for the masala to stick well to the fish.
