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


  1. Grind together chillies, turmeric, pepper, salt, cumin seeds, mustard, garlic and shallot/onions to a smooth paste.

  2. Clean the fish well, wash and drain. Make a few parallel gashes on both sides. If it is a big fish, cut into slices.

  3. Rub the fish or slices well with the masala paste. Marinate for 1 hour.

  4. 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.
