 The Big Pieces of Surmai Fish have been marinated since the day for almost 7-8 hours...One can buy the fish as per weight- with Min weight being 150gm...... The Marinate is simple & basic - Turmeric, Salt, Red Chillies, Garlic & Ginger Paste, Garam Masala , quite well marinated ... The Pieces are cut as per the weight requirement & put in the big Kadhai to be deep fried ..........

Small shop serving wonderful Fried fish
Priced at Rs 600/Per for 1 KG of the Fried Fish seems a Little high especially for a Road Side shop....But in winters its worth the Experience ...... Generous dose of Masala is sprinkled over the Fried Fish along with a Dash of Fresh Lemon Juice ..served along with Raddish,Oinons, Green Chutney & Fresh Lime

Fried Fish...This is how it looks......
