The actual version of fish fry is always made by 'bhetki fillet'. But Bhetki is not available here, so instead of that we may use Cod, Tilapia or any white fish fillet. It tastes great as an appetizer or side dish accompaning with main menu. This fish fry is available from road side street food corner to five star hotel, everywhere in Kolkata. From outside it is crispy and crunchy, but inside is tender with soft and spicy fish.
1 fillet of Tilapia (0.5 lb)
1 flake of Garlic (Grated)
1/3 tsp Ginger paste
1 tbsp grated Onion
1/4 tsp Black Pepper powder
1/2 tsp Green Chilli paste
1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
1 tsp Lemon juice
A pinch of Garam Masala
1 Egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Oil for frying
Salt to taste

Cut fish fillet into 4 slices. Mix onion, garlic, ginger and green chilli paste. Cover the fish slices with the layer of this paste. Then add black pepper powder, cumin powder, lemon juice, salt and garam masala in it. Marinate well and keep it in refrigerator for overnight.

Whisk 1 egg in a flat bowl to a smooth consistency. Pour bread crumbs mixed with little salt in a flat dish.

Heat enough oil for deep frying in a wok. Dip each fish slice in the whisked egg and roll it in bread crumb gently.
When oil is enough heated, slide the fish slices in it. Fry the fish slices on low flame, till both sides are nicely browned and crispy.

Serve hot with onion rings and mustard sauce.
