Here is a hotel style tawa fried recipe for all sea food lovers which can be followed by anyone… This involves no grinding no much ingredients…

These tawa fried fish are absolutely mouthwatering, lipsmaking 😋😋😋…

They are very easy and quick to make ,if your fish is matinated well before …

I had come across this recipe in some famous manglore fish joints… but was never getting the taste as theirs but after several trys and enquires with friends , i found a recipe similar to theirs ☺…

I am sure this recipe will be liked by everyone and enjoyed to the fullest…

  I have tried preparing fish masala fry in different ways by grinding, or some times even prepared using powders but this one is simple and ultimate and very quick  🙂 i am very sure that this tawa fry recipe will steal the hearts of your guests and family and you will be surely complimented…

The same recipe can be made with Pomfret(already in the blog ), Mackerel  but goes best for pomfret and seer/kingfish…

Lets see the recipe


(Here I am sharing recipe for 3 large slices of Anjal/seer fish)

•2 /1/2 tblsp everest tikkalal chilly powder(can add as per spice level )
•1 tblsp limejuice
•1 tsp Tamrind paste (diluted in 1/4 cup water)
•3/4 tsp gingergarlic paste
•1 tsp Turmeric powder
•1 tblsp oil
•1 tblsp ghee
•Lemon wedges for serving
•few curryleaves


▪ wash fish and drain all water
▪Marinate this with limejuice, salt and turmeric-1/2tsp for a hour or so(the more marination,more tastier)
▪Now heat a pan add oil and ghee 
▪Add chilly powder, turmeric let it fry till chilly powder changes its colour to dark red
▪Now add tamarind paste, gingergarlic paste mix well add fish ,salt(add only if necessary as we have already added for marination)
▪add little water allow this to cook (if necessary )
▪Now turn other side and cook till you get roast effect
▪add curry leaves cook a minute and enjoy
▪Serve with lemon wedges


* cook this on low to medium heat…
* I always use Everest tikkalal chilly powder in my recipes, if you can use any chilly powder and you can increase or decrease the amount of chilly powder and tamrind paste or limejuice depending on individual taste
*I have used Dabar Hommade Tamarind paste or you can use a gooseberry sized tamrind soaked in water..
