    • 4 tbsp red chili paste
    • 1 tbsp Dabur Hommade Ginger Paste
    • 1 tbsp Dabur Hommade Garlic Paste
    • 1 tsp turmeric powder
    • 1 tsp garam masala
    • 1 tsp cumin powder
    • 1 tsp coriander powder
    • 2 tbsp curd
    • 1 tsp Dabur Lemoneez
    • Salt to taste
    • Vegetable oil
    • Finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
    • 1 lemon wedge
    • Green chutney


    1. Take the fish pieces and wash them clean
    2. Wipe off any excess water with the help of kitchen towel
    3. Now in a separate plate, mix all the spices and Dabur Lemoneez together and make a paste
    4. If the consistency of the paste seems too thick, you can add few drops of water
    5. Take the fish pieces and start coating them with paste
    6. Make sure the paste has been applied on all the pieces and on both the sides
    7. Keep the marinaded pieces aside for 1-2 hours to allow the spice mix seep properly into the fish
    8. Once the fish has been marinaded for 1-2 hours, in a frying pan heat oil
    9. Start adding the marinaded fish pieces to the pan one-by-one
    10. Make sure the pan is not over-crowded else the fish will not fry properly and there are chances it might be left raw or under cooked
    11. Fry the fish on low flame and after 3 minutes flip the pieces to let them cook on the other side as well
    12. Once the fish has turned golden brown, take the pan off the heat and transfer the fish pieces to a plate covered with tissue paper
    13. Once the excess oil has been soaked by the tissue paper, transfer the fish pieces to a serving plate
    14. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves, lemon wedge
    15. Serve hot with green chutney as an accompaniment
