It is using on daily basis and it will be available on market at any season and cost will change based on season and fishes. Here, I am going to share the method of preparation of fish fry which is made by Pink Perch and it is also known as Kilimeen in Kerala. Its main attraction is its colour and it is having light Pink colour. So many people like this fish very much and its cost is less comparing other fishes in market. It is the favourite fish item for children.
Pink Perch is one of the famous fish and looks very attractive, beautiful and also it is very tasty fish. This fish will be very good to fry and it is used as the side dish with rice for lunch and dinner. We need not to spend more time to clean this fish.
