Kodiveri Fish Fry

100% delicious fish fry!

I have tried several fish fries at home. I learned this Kodiveri Fish Fry from Chef Jacob. He used egg in this recipe.
 
I felt it to be different from the rest of the fish fries that I make. So far, I used different combination of masala powders and tried out fish fries. This one was far different from the rest of the fish fries. My husband wanted me to make this fish fry right away. I made the fish masala, and it was quite a loose (dropping) consistency. I thought I have gone wrong somewhere.
 
When I fried the fish using the masala, it came out very well…I would say 100% perfect and delicious as how it should be. When the fish is soaked in the dropping consistency, egg acts as a binding agent and makes this fish fry a tasty one. Thank you Chef for sharing this tasty fish fry. Fish lovers, you should definitely try this tasty dish…You will definitely agree with me.

2. You can marinade the fish and refrigerate for half hour.

3. I usually shallow fry the fish using 2 teaspoons of oil. Some prefer to deep fry the fish.

4. When you deep fry the fish, make sure you heat the oil in high flame and when you fry the fish, deep fry it in medium flame.

Serve. Curd rice.
