Sankara Meen Varuval Recipe / Red Snapper Fish Fry

Today was fish day in our house. Fish is very common in our house and fish fry is prefered to kulambu. We have this as a side dish to any rice or have it just like that! It is that tasty. 
For a perfect fish fry, the marinade is what is important. That gives the flavor to the final product.
I have used red snapper variety for this recipe (sankara meen). I have already posted Vanjaram Fish Fry with a different marinade. Do check that out as well.


For the marinade
  • Fish - 5 pieces
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 3 tsp
  • Lime juice - 1 tsp

1. Add turmeric powder, chilli powder and lime juice n a bowl. Sprinkle some water and make it into a paste. 
2. Coat the fishes in this paste and let it rest for 30 mins. Make sure all the sides of the fish is coated well.

3. Heat oil in kadai, add the fishes 3 at a time and deep fry them.
4. Fry till golden brown.

1. You can also add oil in dosa tawa and toast it. But make sure it gets cooked well.Sometimes it tends to stay undercooked.
2. This is a bit spicy, adjust spice level to your preference.

Until next time,
