Kodiveri Fish Fry Recipe is a delicious fish fry that can be had as an accompaniment to rice.
I have tried several fish fries at home. I learned this Kodiveri Fish Fry Recipe from Chef Jacob. He used egg in this recipe. I felt it to be different from the rest of the fish fries that I made so far. I used different combination of masala powders and tried out fish fries. This Kodiveri Fish Fry Recipe was far different from the rest of the fish fries.
My husband wanted me to make this fish fry right away. I made the fish masala, and it was quite a loose (dropping) consistency. I thought I have gone wrong somewhere.
When I fried the fish using the masala, it came out very well. I would say 100% perfect and delicious as how it should be. When the fish is soaked in the dropping consistency, egg acts as a binding agent and makes this fish fry a tasty one. Thank you Chef for sharing this tasty fish fry.
Fish lovers, you should definitely try this tasty dish. You will definitely agree with me.
