Fish Fry | Meen Varuval

This dish requires not much of a introduction.One of our favorites.Its tastes speaks for itself.I should seriously mention about my MIL here,on Wednesday's it was declared as a seafood day and ofcourse if shasti or kirthigai or pradosham does not fall on that day.It was a real feast.She will make Fish Gravy, Fish Fry, Shrimp thokku and even Crab.I was shocked for the first time.At my place it will be either one of them with a Sambar or Rasam.Each one in the house used to like one and she will prepare it for dinner. We were just given small task like grinding coconut etc.,We will happily help her and eagerly wait for the dinner.

Fish is high in omega 3 fatty acids, which are heart-friendly, and a regular diet of fish is highly recommended by nutritionists.Lately have started to fry the fish in my electric griddle with sprinkling little oil,turned out to have the same taste as deep fry.
