Kerala Fish Fry

Fish fry is one of the best thing to go with rice and moru kachiyathu and a stir fry. The only thing I hate about it is the smell that keeps lingering in the whole house after its done, making our clothes and bags also smell of it. Otherwise it is just super addictive.

At any point of the day, I would choose to go for fish fry rather than fish curry and so would Jacob and Jordan . They are so easy to fall in love with. Its so hard to drag my kido home after school or after play in the park. But bribing him to have fish fry for lunch/dinner after we get back home, would instantly turn him into a sweetheart who would listen to his mama :D. It is just so addictive and yum to have it with some rice and moru kachiyathu. If you do have a stir fry also to go with it, it can turn into a feast.

  1. 6 large pieces of fish, cleaned. I have used pomfret here.
  2. 2 tsp of Kashmiri chilly powder
  3. 1/2 tsp of pepper powder
  4. 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
  5. 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Oil for shallow frying
  • In a bowl, add the ingredients 2-6 . Mix it with your fingers to blend all the ingredients well. If you feel that the masala is little dry, add a tsp or two of water to make it into a paste.
  • Add the pomfret pieces to it and swirl it in the masala and brush the masala onto each piece. Keep it in the refrigerator for about an hour before you head to frying it.
  • In a pan, take 2 tbsp of oil. Heat it up. Once hot, add the fish pieces. Turn down the heat to low. Let it fry for about 5-8 minutes. Flip the fish and let it cook again for 5-8 minutes. 
  • Switch off the heat and remove it into a serving dish. 
  • Serve it with rice, thoran and moru kachiyathu. 
  1. The marinated fish can be kept in the freezer for future use and need not be necessary used up the same day. 
  2. If you find it difficult to flip the fish because of sticking on to the surface of the pan, then switch of the heat for about a minute and then flip the fish using a spatula. This way the fish would be easier to flip without breaking up.
