Tips to make perfect Rava Fish Fry:

Fish: You can use any type of fishes here. Fishes like pomfret, seer, barracuda or any boneless fish can be used.

Coconut oil: I used coconut oil for this recipe because coconut flavor has a more distinct flavor. However, you can swap to any other cooking oil.

Spice blend: The spice blend is super easy and quite accessible one. To make it even spicier, you can add pepper powder, fennel powder, coriander powder. Marination is key, The longer you marinade taste better.

If you intend to use the whole fish like pomfret, make sure you make a slit on the fishes that helps in good marination.

Semolina/Rava: Coat the rava/ semolina over the marinated fish generously that gives you crunchy rava fish fry.
