Tawa meen roast thalappakatti, Tawa fish fry

Tawa fish roast/ Tawa meen roast is a flavorful and lip smacking fish roast where spiced batter coated fish fillet is again coated with breadcrumbs and roasted to perfection on tawa. This style of tawa fish fry/ meen roast idea I purely adopted from thalappakatti restaurant not claiming it’s the same but is close to its taste. I am a huge fan of this meen roast since 2013 and never miss to relish it whenever we go the restaurant, but current scenario does not allow us to enjoy these simple luxuries. So I tried making this recipe for the first time at home during the lockdown and kept perfecting its taste every time and now that the recipe looked perfect to me decided to blog it and publish it.

We always eat/ make fish pakora/ fish fry at home alongside biryani/ curry / kuzhambu why not try this style tawa fish roast once ?? As it looks it tastes outstanding and almost close to the restaurant ones and you guys can try making it in homestyle. Relish this meen roast/ tawa fish roast this Sunday alongside CLAY POT PRAWN BIRYANI that I posted yesterday. So let’s get to the making of Tawa fish fry!!

Instructions
  1. Wash the fish fillet gently. Slice each fish fillet into 2 thin slices.. In a bowl add fish fillets to it add ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt, cumin powder and lemon juice. Mix everything well in a way the fish is coated well in masala. Marinate the fish for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. After 30 minutes of marination remove the fish fillets from the fridge and keep it aside for 5 minutes.
  2. In a plate add besan/ kadalai maavu, rice flour, salt and garlic powder. Mix well and add water to make a semi thick paste. Do not make the paste very thick/ thin as it will be tough to coat the fish.
  3. Now coat each marinated fish fillet in the besan mixture one by one. Now add bread crumbs in another plate, coat the batter coated fish fillet in bread crumbs well. Keep it aside. Repeat the process till all the fish fillets are coated well. Keep the fish aside for 5 minutes so the bread crumb to the fish well and does not separate in the oil.
  4. After 5 minutes of rest time heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan, when the oil is just hot (not too hot as the bread crumbs will burn quickly) place 2 to 3 pieces of fish fillet on the tawa. Fry them in low to medium flame. When one side looks cooked flip it gently with a spatula and cook the other side as well. The fish will be very fragile so flip it gently. When both sides are cooked/ fried well remove it from the pan and serve it hot. Repeat the process till all the fillet is over. Serve it hot with CLAY POT PRAWN BIRYANI.
