King Fish - Fish Fry Recipe / Vanjaram Fish Fry Recipe

Fish Fry is our favourite. We love any fish fry but mostly prefer Vanjaram because it's easy to eat! Unlike some other varieties of fish, this fish has only a centre bone which is easy to remove. Also it tastes really good so this is a regular in our daily meals.

Marinating the fish is important. When you marinate them well and let it rest for a couple of hours, then the flavours are all soaked in and tastes awesome.

I have already posted Sankara fish fry. The marinade for that is different from the marinade I have used in this recipe. Do check out.


  • Fish                             5 pieces
  • Turmeric powder      1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder     1 tsp
  • Lime juice                   1 tsp
  • Corn flour                   1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder      3 tsp
  • Salt                              to taste
  • Oil                               to fry


1. Clean and wash the fish.
2. In a bowl mix the turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, lime juice, corn flour and salt well.

3. Add the fish pieces to this paste and make sure to coat the fishes well.
4. Let it marinate for a couple of hours.
5. In a kadai, add required oil. Add few pieces of fish at a time and deep fry until the fishes turn golden brown.
6. Remove and place it on tissue paper to absorb the excess oil.      

Until next time,
