  • Take a large mixing bowl.  Add coarsely grounded green masala paste.
  • Add all Fish Fillet into the mixing bowl.  Give it a nice mix along with green masala paste and marinate the fish.  Ensure all the fish is coated properly with green masala paste. Keep the marinated fish at room temperature for at least for 30 minutes.

  • Remove the fried fish on a kitchen tissue paper so that excess oil is absorbed.
