Preparation Time30 min

Cooking Time15 min


  • ½ kg fish fillets
  • Oil for frying (preferably mustard oil)
  • A handful of curry leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon Dabur Hommade Ginger Garlic Paste
  • ¾ teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder
  • Salt as required
  • ½ tablespoon coriander powder
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  1. To prepare the first step of fish marination, put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix them and make a thick paste

  2. Add salt in the end as per taste

  3. Keep it aside and start preparing for the second round of marination

  4. Take the fish and wash it properly, pat dry it with the help of a kitchen towel and make slits

  5. Take the first masala marination, that was kept aside, and massage it all over the fish making sure. Also, apply the paste on the insides of the fish, through the slits, so that the fish gets properly coated

  6. Now move on to prepare the second part of the marination

  7. Add besan (gram flour) to a bowl along with other ingredients and make a fine paste

  8. Make sure the consistency is just about right to coat the marinated fish with

  9. Dip the marinated fish in the mix making sure both the sides of the fish are well coated with the paste

  10. Keep it aside till the flour turns moist. The moisture in the fish makes the flour damp and it sticks well to the fish. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes

  11. In a pan add mustard oil and leave it to heat on medium flame

  12. Once the oil has heated, put the coated fish in it and leave it to cook for about 2 minutes or till the time it has turned golden brown

  13. Flip the fish gently to avoid the masala from coming out and leave it to cook on the other side as well

  14. Once the fish becomes crispy on both the sides, take it out of the pan and allow it to rest on a kitchen towel for few seconds. It will enable the towel to soak any excess oil

  15. Transfer the cooked fish to a serving platter

  16. Serve it hot

  17. For Garnish:

  18. Serve with sliced lemon wedges, onion rings and spicy green chutney

  19. Option for Weight Watchers:

  20. Just in case you want to avoid the calories that comes with frying the fish in oil, you can opt to grill the fish in the oven

  21. The marination and preparation process remains the same

  22. Instead of frying the fish in oil, you can instead put it in a pre-heated oven/griller and bake for 20 minutes at 170 C

  23. Try some of the other products from Dabur Hommade & prepare delicious recipes:

  25. Ginger Paste
