Fried Fish With Lemons
Wondering what the role of lemon is in this recipe? Not much…it is just used at the end just like any other Indian Fried Fish dishes (Simple Fish Fry (Meen Varuval)).  I do not know why it is named like that. However, taste was very good. You should be careful while adding the sauce and vinegar as it may turn sour and salty. So be careful while adding them. The outer layer would be crispy enough and you can just have this dish as an appetizer or with noodles and fried rice (Egg and Soyabean Sprouts Fried Rice).


Fish pieces – 20 nos.
Lemon – 3 nos.
Vinegar – 4 tablespoon
Soya sauce – 4 tablespoon
All purpose flour (Maida) – 3 tablespoon
Ginger paste – 1 teaspoon
Pepper powder (milagu thool) – as desired
Salt – as desired
Oil – as desired

Apply 2 teaspoons of vinegar or 2 teaspoons of thick tamarind juice or even juice of half lemon on both the sides of the fish for few minutes. Then, wash the fish. This will help to clean the fish and remove the odor from the fish to a certain extent.
