Madras Fried Fish from India
2 pounds (1 kg.) fish
8 dry red chillies
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp. pepper powder
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp. cumin seeds
1/8 tsp. mustard seeds
8 flakes garlic
18 shallot cloves
Oil for frying
Yield: 6 Servings
Grind together chillies, turmeric, pepper, salt, cumin seeds, mustard, garlic and shallot/onions to a smooth paste.
Clean the fish well, wash and drain. Make a few parallel gashes on both sides. If it is a big fish, cut into slices.
Rub the fish or slices well with the masala paste. Marinate for 1 hour.
Pour small quantity of oil in a heavy bottomed frying pan and bring it to boil.
Fry the fish evenly on both sides over medium fire in hot oil.
Note: Pour small quantities of oil and fry the fish on both sides over a slow fire. If too much oil is used or the oil is not hot enough, the spices on the fish will get separated from the fish in the oil.
