A simple marinade of curry leaves, coriander, dried red chillies and lemon, rubbed on a whole snapper and pan fried in mustard oil for more deliciousness. Pair with rice and dal for a highly satisfying meal experience.

Ingredients: 

  1. 1 large whole snapper

  7. 3-4 tbsp mustard oil

  8. 1 tsp cumin seeds

Method:

  1. Clean the snapper well, descale and remove the insides; wash well and dry. Score both sides of the fish and keep aside.

  2. Grind the curry leaves with a little water and a pinch of salt to a coarse paste like consistency.

  3. In a mortar and pestle (or grinder), add the curry leaf paste, garlic, dry red chillies, coriander seeds, lemon juice and a pinch of salt; grind to a coarse paste. If you prefer a smooth texture, then grind with a bit of water in a blender.

  4. Season the fish with salt and apply the marinade well on both sides. Leave for at least 2-4 hours, longer if possible.
