Masala Fish Fry

Masala Fish Fry

This is a simple and easy fish preparation. I used Basa fish for this dish. You can use any small fish or if bigger one, make sure to cut it into small pieces. The fish is shallow fried, so less oil is used for this dish.

Try it out and you will love it.


8 - 10 Fish pieces
3 - 5 tbsp Oil
2 tbsp Red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
5 - 8 Curry leaves (finely chopped)
2 tbsp Coriander leaves (finely chopped, optional)
1 tbsp Lime juice
1/2 tsp Oil
Salt to taste


  • Wash and clean the fish pieces. Marinate them with red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, curry leaves, coriander leaves, lime juice, 1/2 tsp oil and salt.
  • Keep this aside for half an hour.
  • Heat 3 - 5 tbsp oil in a non stick pan. Put the marinated fish pieces in it. Cook on medium heat.
  • When the fish is cooked properly and when both sides are golden brown colour, transfer them into a kitchen towel.
  • Serve it hot with steamed rice.

  4. Hi Nimmy! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I wonder what's the best kind of fish for this? Also, where did you buy turmeric/curcumin powder? Can't seem to find this spice now at a local store.

    1. Any fish with less thorns or small fishes are best for this recipe. Usually, you get turmeric powder and cumin powder from any indian spice store. Or else you can make a powder by yourself. Dry roast cumin seeds and grind it to form the cumin powder.

  6. Coriander is a well-known masala in Indian cuisine.It is the chief ingredient of all food items in our country. It is commonly known as dhaniya or dhana. It can be used as a whole masala or in powdered form as well. Coriander is a flowering plant that belongs to the parsley family. Its leaves are lacy, shiny, soft and thin. Coriander seeds are plump and brown in color with hollow cavity which bear essential oils that lend to the flavor of dishes when used in cooking. Coriander leaves are also used in Indian cooking.
