Portions: 4 Slices
Prep. Time: 20 Mins. + 30 Mins. (marination)
Cooking Time: 12 to 15 Mins.
- King Fish Steaks – 4 slices (400 to 500 gms.)

Step 1: Soak the tamarind in ¼ cup warm water for 15 minutes. Mash and strain to get a thick pulp.
Step 2: Meanwhile wash the kingfish slices / steaks. Drain well and apply salt and lime juice and leave aside for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Next mix the ginger-garlic paste, tamarind pulp, red chilly powder and turmeric powder. Take this mixture and smear the kingfish slices with it. Leave to marinate for 30 to 40 minutes.
Step 4: After you have marinated the fish, take the rawa in a flat plate and coat each slice of the fish with the rawa. Leave aside for 5 minutes.
Step 5: Heat 2 tbsp. oil in a pan suitable to fry the fish and fry the fish slices on medium heat, two at a time till the outer coating is crisp (3 to 4 minutes on each side). When the fish is fried, remove from the pan and place on a plate lined with absorbent kitchen paper.
