Chilly Fish

We are fish lovers and like it  whether it is gravy or fry or podimas.Back in India we get real good and fresh fish and I'm never satisfied with what we get here.I always stick to the farm fresh Tilapia. Never tried any other fish.When I go to shop for fish will think of cat fish and salmon and go but never had the guts to buy it,thinking what if it does not turn good hmm should try those one day.

Had the time and wanted to try out something different.Thought of this recipe and really loved the way it turned out.This is a real spicy and tasty fish recipe..normally we prepare chicken in this style.But fish is equally good.The color makes it as though it is real spicy but it is not.Try this one.You will love it for sure.
