Kane also known as "Lady Fish" is very popular in the Konkan coast of Karnataka.
This dish is a another favourite among the fish eating community.
I am putting up this recipe on the request of some of my close friends who not only encouraged me to start this blog, but are also followers to my blog.
Kane or Lady fish - 4
Red Chilli powder - 1 tbsp (or as per taste)
Hing/Asofoetida - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Cocum/tamarind juice - 1 tsp
salt to taste
Rava/Semolina - 2 tbsp
Olive oil - 2 tbsp (coconut oil should be used for getting authentic taste)
Garnishing with Sliced onion and Lemon
Wash and clean the fish.
Make a paste of the Red chilli powder, salt, hing, cocum and coriander powder.
Apply evenly on the fish and keep in the fridge for atleast 2 hrs.
Remove the marinated fish from fridge.
Coat evenly with Rava on all sides.
Take a frying pan, add 2 tbsp of oil, just enough to cover one half of the fish.
When the oil is hot, fry the fish in it, turning it over once in 2 mins till its golden crisp on the outside and soft and cooked inside.
Serve with raw onion rings and lemon.
