Kuttanadan Fish fry





Every time I post a Kuttanadan recipe ,some of you might think that I am from Kuttanad.
But I m not..but my Mom is!!!So that was enough for a household to get transformed to a complete kuttanadan diet :)
We had the kutanadan influence even in our breakfast.Believe it or not we had kanji everyday for breakfast ,we loved it so much that we never allowed mom to make anything else in the morning,and on festive occasions Palappam and Duck curry/roast was a must.. I was even ready to take kanji ,cherupayar and mulaku chammanthi to school ;)..But N prefers it only when he is sick 
I bet those who have ever tasted atleast one kuttanadan dish,would never forget the heat of the spices,especially the pepper ,the fabulous taste and aroma of all other ingredients which makes the curry so special :)
Recipe for Kuttanad special fish fry- Fish fried with Spices and curry leaves
Ingredients:-
Fish - 1/2 kg
Red chilli powder - 1 tea spoon
Pepper crushed - 2 - 2 .5 tea spoon
Chili flakes - 1 tea spoon
Ginger Garlic paste - 2 tsp
Vinegar/Lemon Juice - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
oil

Method
Clean and cut the fish into medium pieces, pat dry well(you can use any fish u want,i used tilapia fillet)
In a bowl combine Red chilli powder ,crushed pepper,GG paste,Vinegar/Lemon juice and salt and make a paste.If the paste is too dry add some oil to it.
Apply the paste to the fish pieces and set aside for 30 minutes- 1 hour
Heat oil in a pan , add curry leaves and stir well for 30 seconds.
Then add fish pieces and fry it for 8-10 minutes .Fry all the fish pieces batch by batch, adding curry leaves with every batch
Drain on paper towels and serve warm..
