ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
garam masala- quarter tsp
lime juice - 2 tbsp
oil - 1 tbsp
salt - to taste
For coating/ dusting - plain flour 4 tbsp
Oil to pan grill -  2 tbsp..

Serves  2
Steps to follow:
In a bowl except fish chilli powder to salt add all the above  ingredients with little water and mix.Now the marination is ready.
Remove scales,fins and insides of the fish and make few slits. Wash several times then drain the water completely.
 Apply the marination over  the fish with hands. Marinate for at least one hour.
 Dip fish in flour.
Heat 2 tbsp oil and pan grill the fish both sides until golden brown.
 You can also trim the fried fish and  serve.
