Fried fish recipe is favorite for all fish lovers. So here is yet another tasty fried fish recipe which is very popular fish recipe. Rava fish fry / semolina fish fry - well marinated fish is coated with semolina or rava and then shallow fried over a medium flame results in a crispy exterior and moist tender inside. I used to fry fish in many ways. As am a fried fish lover, i love experiments in such fried fish recipes. The marination of fish depends on ones's taste and preference only. Here i prefer mildly spiced but you can add more chili powder or crushed chilies in the marination if you prefer heat. This is an easy to make fish fry recipe and so i skipped the use of  ginger garlic paste. You can make this fried fish batter quickly. As fried  fish is considered as an important food in many cuisines, there are many varieties of fried fish recipes from around the world. Some prefer frying the marinated fish, some covered  this marinated fish in batter or flour or herbs and then fry, some prefer deep frying while some shallow fry, some grill the fish without any spices other than vinegar and salt etc. Here is my recipe showing how to make restaurant style rava fish fry / rava fried fish / semolina fish fry / mangalorean fish fry / easy fish batter /deep fried fish batter recipe /batter fried fish/ how to fry fish with semolina .
