Anchovies are called Nethili in Tamil. These are tini tiny fishes edible both in fresh and dried form. The dried ones are called Nethili Karuvaadu, which I've used for this recipe, coated with masala and pan fried until crisp.
Fresh Anchovies can be found in regular grocery markets under tinned foods packed with salt and preservatives. These can be used for kuzhambu preparations.
Simple fish varuval (shallow fry) with lemony flavour using fresh water Lake Trout. This is just like any other fish varuval and just sharing to let you know that this fish is quite edible in Indian style and taste similar to Salmon. Moreover want to add on all these fish varieties to my recipe database.
Silver Pomfret / Vavval, is a great fish for grilling or baking. Preparation takes less time, low calorie, healthy Indian appetizer to make any family meal sizzle.
Term Tandoori calls for use of a traditional tandoor oven or clay oven. Simple kumpati (kumbati / mann aduppu) which are popular in Indian kitchens can be used for grilling these to get smoky flavour. For those who live abroad with conventional ovens can use broil setting to get little bit of the smoky flavour. I did little bit of baking and then broiled to darken the sides.
Red Snapper is called Sankara Meen in Tamil. Check here for a picture. This is like any other fish fry recipe, only thing is I made my own masala powder with little dry coriander crust.
Need to prepare something fishy with bread slices, here we go for tasty fish bread balls..good appetizier..can feed easily the kids if they dont like to eat fish..
I always love fish fries with masala stuck on it. The plain chilli powder, salt, lemon juice combo fish fries you get in the restaurants tastes like “karuvaadu”…….. atleast to me.
This is the way my mom fries fish and this recipe has been in our house for generations. The masala can be modified here and there to suit each ones need
