Lahori Fish Fry Recipe
The Japanese Thread fin fish (Sankara fish) used in this recipe is a popular fish in Tamil Nadu . In spite of its name, the Lahori fish fry is common in India too especially in parts of Tamil Nadu , Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Punjab . There are two ways of preparing this dish; one is the traditional version and the other is the restaurant version. In the former, the fish is coated with the spice marinade and deep fried while in the latter, the fish is coated in a spiced batter and then deep fried. The recipe outlined is the former version but if you wish to make the restaurant version, then all that you need to do is prepare a batter instead of a marinade. Either way, this is a uniquely delicious way to enjoy your favorite fish. You may either use whole fish (I have used Japanese thread fin bream [Sankara] today ) or boneless fish fillets.
