• 2 fillets - White Bass (or any firm white fish)
  • 2-3 Medium shallots
  • 1" Ginger
  • 2-3 cloves Garlic
  • 8-10 Curry Leaves
  • 2 Green Chillis
  • 2 tbspoon Lime Juice
  • handful of Cilantro - finely chopped for garnishing
  • 2-3 tbspoon Oil
  • Salt to taste


  1. Mix some salt with lemon juice and rub on the fish - this keeps the fish fresh and gets rid of the "fishiness" - and set aside. In the meantime, heat some oil in a pan and roast the ginger, garlic, green chillis, curry leaves, and chopped onion. Grind all this with lime juice and salt.
  2. Rub the paste over the fish fillets. You don't have to keep the fish marinade for long. Pan fry fish till the translucency disappears. Garnish with cilantro and lime and serve with rice and dal.
