Fish fry is one of the mouth-watering dish for non-vegetarians. Fish dishes are very tasty if it is curry, stir fry and fries. Non-vegetarians can't eat lunch and dinner without fish dishes especially Keralites. Fish dishes are very costly dishes and its demand is very high in hotels. Fish dishes are mainly used by south Indians so they are trying to make new tasty fish dishes. Fishes are looking good and very useful to human body. We can get different types of tasty fish items from markets at different prices. Ayala or mackerel fish is very tasty and thick fish.
It is very special and tasty Mackerel or Ayala fish fry which is made by Ayala fish. It is very tasty fish and will get it from market very easily. It is medium spicy fish fry and I have used very less quantity of coconut oil to fry this fish. It is shallow fried fish fry so it is not harmful to health. I haven't used any artificial masala to get more taste I just used only natural ingredients which are available at home. I have used pasted masala so we can marinate fish very easily and will get very good taste and all flavour of masala. It is one of the highly demanded dish in restaurants. It is not too much costly fish so everyone can buy this fish in houses. This fish fry is completely homemade dish and healthy dish. It will be very special to those who like fishes. Usually it is served as the side dish of rice, Tapioca, mashed jack fruit for lunch and dinner but I think it is an excellent combination with rice. Let us have a lunch with this tasty Mackerel Fish fry.

Fish molly is also known as fish stew. It has different name in different places. We can write it as fish molee. It is completely a traditional tasty curry. I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes. Better to make it with king fish but here I have used Mackerel fish because I couldn't get king fish. Usually we are making spicy red colour fish curry in houses and hotels. Keralites can't eat rice without fish curries or dishes because fishes are the main side dish of their daily day life. It will be available in some standard hotels and it has a royal effect.
