Crispy Rohu Rawa Fry

Lobeo Rohita is the scientific name of Rohu Fish. This fresh water field fish, is an important human food source in parts of South India. Rohu is in high demand in India. As most of the fish this fresh water Carp fish is a rich source of protein, fatty acids, and essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, calcium, iron, zinc, and iodine. I tried making a strong masala for this fish, as it is fresh water carp and it need more time for marination so that it tastes great. Try this simple fish fry and I am sure you will love it :P

    • 1 lemon juice
    • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
    • Chilli powder- 6-8 tbsp as required
    • 4-5 fine chops of garlic

    • 1/2 tbsp Ajwain -crush it coursly with pestle and motar
    • Salt to taste

Adjust the salt if needed and keep aside the fish to marinate for 15 minutes (you can also keep the fish for more time, I had refrigerated the remaining fish along masala for night dinner and found the fish taste still yumm as the masala had marinated well into fish).
