Homestyle Fish Fry With Yogurt-Cilantro Dip Recipe

Homestyle Fish Fry With Yogurt-Cilantro Dip Recipe


For the fish fries:
  • 4 Tilapia fillets (you can use Bhetki fillets) 
  • 1 small onion
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of cilantro
  • 3-4 mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup of flour (for coating)
  • 1 egg lightly beaten (for coating)
  • 1 cup of plain bread crumb (for coating)
  • 1tbs of oil
  • Salt to Taste
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Oil for frying
For the yogurt dip:
  • 1/2 cup curd
  • 1 cup of cilantro
  • A dash of Lemon
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • Green Chili - 2 
  • 1 tsp Oil
  1. I washed and patted the fillets dry with a paper towel and seasoned both sides with salt and paper.
  2. Cut the fillets into bite size pieces - I got about 5-6 pieces out of each fillet
  3. Blended together the onion, garlic cloves, cilantro and mint leaves along with 1tbs of oil, added the fish to the marinade, covered it and let it stand overnight.
  4. Next day, I made an assembly line of flour, egg and breadcrumbs in 3 different vessels and dredged the fish fillets first in flour, then dunked in the egg and ultimately gave those a coating of breadcrumb.
  5. Heated some oil in a pan and fried the fish till they turned golden brown on each side and served them with the yogurt-cilantro dip.The dip: I blended all the ingredients together and voila.. the dip appeared. I however did not add salt to it.
