Everyone loves fried fish and so here’s another recipe for fried fish. Although it is advised that eating fried fish is not good for health, I would suggest indulging sometimes in between. After all, eating fish is healthier than eating any other fried junk food. So go ahead and try the Goan lady fish rawa pepper fry ASAP.
