Fish Do Pyaza

What is life without some spice ! I sometimes wonder how the use of same spices induces different flavors to different dishes. Guess that's the wonder of Indian cooking ! This fish recipe comes from my grandma's kitchen.She herself is a vegetarian but her fish recipe is something that I die for. Back home Rohu is the fish used for this recipe. But I replaced it with Tilapia fillets.So all the fisheterians get ready for this simple yet delicious fish fry.
Preparation Time - 30 minutes
Serves - 4
Ingredients
Fish - 1 pound Tilapia
Lemon juice - 1tsp
Onion - 2 Medium size
Ginger Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Tomato Puree - 2 tsp
Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste
Red Chili Powder as per taste
Oil for Cooking
Method of Preparation
1 Wash and clean the Tilapia fillets.Cut the fish into medium size pieces. Marinate the fish with lemon juice,turmeric and little salt and keep aside for 10 -15 minutes.
2 Take some oil in a pan and fry the fish on both sides till cooked.
3 Chop onions into thin slices. Take about 2 tsp of oil in the pan. Fry the onions till they look translucent.Add vinegar to the onions now.
4 Add ginger garlic paste and tomato puree to the onion and cook thoroughly. Add salt, and red chilli powder.
5 Once the masala is ready add the fried fish to it. Mix well such that the masala gets coated well on the fish. If needed sprinkle a little water. Add garam masala and pepper powder.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
Serving Tips
Serve hot as a side dish with Jeera Rice/ Fried Rice / Plain rice or even with any flat bread like Naan or Roti
Notes
Make sure the oil is properly hot while frying the fish else the fish may break. Do not over fry the fish.
Variation
You can use any other fish instead of Tilapia for this recipe.
Fresh chopped tomatoes may be used instead of tomato puree.
