    • 1/2 tsp tumeric
    • 15 Bombay onions...sliced coarsely

    • A little water
    • Oil for shallow frying


    1. Cut the fish in rounds about 1.5cm thick.
    2. Grind the coconut and jeera into a paste.
    3. Mix the chilli powder, coriander powder, salt, and a little water. Then mix all these to the coconut paste.
    4. Place the fish on a big bowl and rub this paste evenly. Then add curry leaves and onions sliced coarsely. If mixture is too thick add more water.
    5. Prepare a non stick saucepan and fry on a low flame until onions and masala becomes crispy.
