Very well and after we code this good with salt next here I have some lemon juice also make sure that you cut each and every fish with this lemon juice well now here. I have coated this fish business really well using lemon juice and salt now. I will keep this aside for 15 to 20 minutes now meanwhile we
can start to make our masala to prepare this fish curry for this we need to put some fresh coconut into a blender this red chilli powder. can be replaced by using some dried red chillies next goes in some garam masala. Now this red chilli powder and garam masala are the only two spices that goes in this dish so you want to be sure that you make use of enough of this masalas.
and after we put in our garam masala next add in water close this up and I’m going to run this into a blender to make very fine past. And here my coconut masala paste is ready and also this fish pieces is been sitting on counter for 15 minutes now. I better wash up this fish pieces under call to any water and you’ll need to make sure that you remove the salt.
We are required and after we wash up them really good under cold water next we need to Patra them for this little piece of fish. And remove all the moisture from it really good.
After this is tried up next put in some ginger-garlic paste and some termite powder and rock this on this fish business and now here. I have all my fish pieces coated well using ginger-garlic paste. I make powder now let’s start with the actual process of making fish cry for this here.
