Tawa Fish fry is very famous and tasty dish. We can fry by using different method but Tawa Fish fry is tastier than other fries. We are using very less quantity of Coconut Oil for this fry. In this dish, Inside should be well cooked and outside should be fried. I have made many types of fish fries but here I am going to show new and variety fish fry through this article. Its taste will increase when we cook it in open and closed frying pan. I think this will be known by everybody because it is there in many hotels as special dish. You can make this fry with any types of fishes which you like but here I used Mackerel Fish for making this because it is my favourite fish among fishes. This is medium spicy Fish fry and I used only natural ingredients to make this special fry. This is super combination with hot plain Rice for Lunch and I used this with Rice and Sambar. This is very tasty and healthy dish and it can make very easily at home.

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.
