Fish Rava Fry (Konkani Fish Fry)

Seafood has always been my favorite food. Growing up & living on the coastal area of Karnataka we had seafood every day of the week unless it was a religious day.  A small piece of fish at every meal would be a fulfilling enjoyable meal. Amma cooked different variations of fish fry but this one is my all time favorite. I find the crunchiness of  Rava very appetizing. Deep frying gives the fish a very crunchy coating but I prefer to shallow fry to keep it healthy!


2 medium size King fish
1-2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp haldi (turmeric powder)
1/4 tsp hing (asafoetida)
1/2 tsp coriander powder
salt to taste
1/2 cup rava/sooji/semolina
oil for frying

How it's made:

Cut fish into 1/2"thick slices. Wash under running water. Pat dry. Add a tsp of water to the chilli powder, haldi, hing, coriander powder, salt & make a paste. Rub the paste onto the fish & set aside for a few mins. Roll fish in rava until well coated & pan fry in a few tsp of oil for 4-5 mins on either side on medium high heat. Drain on paper towel. Serve hot.

Serves: 4 -6
