Fish Fry (Fish and Chips Style)

Standard

Already I have shared one fish fry recipe and this one is completely different from that because I have induced Maize flour/Cornmeal as the base of fish fry. As usual collected this from of the cookery shows in Television by Chef. KiranJethwa

Fish fry was crispy, soft and delicious with the flavor of Maize flour. The most important is very easy, simple and little time consumption recipe, even kids can prepare themselves. I have served it with tomato ketchup and Strawberry Kiwi Mojito as of Summer. Let us move on to the recipe…

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #111 hosted by Angie@thenvicegarderner.

As the name this green fish fry, is green in colour and a good dish for summer because I have used mint and coriander leaves. Good for summer, mild spicy, crispy outer side and soft inside and delicious taste.
