Fish Roast

A popular and tasty  fish delicacy  from Kerala. It is a simple dish in which fish is fried and then cooked in a medium spicy masala. You can serve it with rice,roti and Indian breads. Here I have used king fish for the preparation,but you can use tuna,salmon for the same. For extra taste you can add roasted coconut bits also in this.Here goes the recipe


  • Fish – 250 gram
  • Onion – 1
  • Ginger – 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic – 1 teaspoon
  • Green chilly – 2
  • Vinegar – 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander powder – 2 teaspoon
  • Chilly powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Fennel powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Pepper powder – 1/2 teaspoon

To Marinate

  • Ginger garlic paste – 2 teaspoon
  • Vinegar – 1 teaspoon
  • Pepper powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Chilly powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Rice flour – 1 tablespoon
  • Fennel powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt



  1. Mix the ingredients for marination with water and marinate the fish pieces for 20 minutes. Fry  both sides of the fish in oil and keep it aside.
  2. In the same oil saute onion adding little salt , then add ginger,garlic, green chilly and curry leaf.
