  • Make deep gashes on both sides of the fish.
  • In a blender combine together Kashmiri red chili,coriander seeds, fenugreek seeds,tamarind pulp,garlic,salt to taste and required amount of water.Grind to form a thick and smooth paste.Marinate the fish with this masala. Keep aside for 20 to 30 minutes.
