Top Tips to make the best Fish Masala Fry:

Marinade: For this recipe, you can marinade for just 5 mins or simple overnight marination also works well.
For overnight marination, use glass container or recommended freezer-safe container. Cover the fish and refrigerate.

Oil: I have used vegetable oil in this recipe. You may use sesame oil, gingerly oil or coconut oil. Every oil has a distinct flavour.

Fish: Use white thick fleshed fish for best results.
