That’s right, no dietary restrictions needed to have fried fish on the menu; in fact, if you ask me, I’d love to have it any day at all, and the more the better. Well, I would if I could, but the way I like my fried fish requires a lot of time and effort, so it’s not as frequent as I’d like, but here’s some from last week when my mother was visiting.
I did all the marinating the night before– which was the most simple marinade of red chilli powder, pinch of turmeric, salt, lime juice, and garlic. The next day, my sweet mom dusted each of them in rice flour and shallow-fried them in a skillet.
Serve with rice and rasam, and it is a meal fit for a king. BTW, this is catfish cut up as steaks.
