Red chilli powder – 1 1/2 tsp

Coriander powder – 3 tsp

Pepper powder – 1 tsp

Salt – as required

Fennel seeds – 1 tsp

Curry leaves – few

Lemon juice –  2 tsp

Ginger garlic paste – 1 1/2 tsp


  • Grind all the ingredients  under’ to grind’ to a smooth paste.
  • Sprinkle little water if the paste is too dry.


  • Marinate fish with the paste and keep aside for at least 30 minutes. ( I cut fillets to small strips)
