Tilapia fish fry

Tilapia Fish fry is a typical cuisine from Eastern India. But then I 've tried is quite different but the theme remains the same.I stay in Kenya , so impossible for me to get traditional indian spices in all forms, but just to try with available spices , friends it just turned out to be excellent.

Ingredients: Tilapia fillet(300 gms) , Vinegar(3 teaspoons), egg ( 4pcs.) , biscuit dust(20 gms), Soya sauce (1/2 teaspoon ) , garlic paste(1/2 teaspoon), Mustard sauce(1/2 teaspoon), Red chilli paste(1/2 teaspoon).

Procedure: Marinate the tilapia fish fillet with vinegar, soya sauce, garlic paste , red chilli paste, mustard sauce for about 30-45 minutes. Make a separate egg batter. Add salt for taste.Heat oil in a frying pan.Dip the marinated fish pieces in egg batter for 1/2 min., then cover it with biscuit dust . Release it in the frying pan when the oil is ready . Cook it till one side turns golden brown. With the help of a spatula turn it slowly, cautiously and put the other side facing the oil.Cook this side also nicely.When both sides are cooked well and has taken an attractive golden brown color put it on a serving plate. I would advice to use a tissue paper to soak the excess oil. Decorate with cut capsicum, onion, tomatoes or vegetables of your choice. Lime is a must . A drop of lime adds extra taste and leaves the taste buds tantalizing forever.

For everyone of us , fish is something easily available.Now the similar dish can be tried with rohu fillets, catla fillets, pompret fillets.
