This Fish Masala can be made dry and with gravy which is very easy to prepare and it tastes great. I am making semi-gravy Fish Masala, which is extremely delicious and a perfect side dish for rice or roti. If you like dry fish masala, skip the steps for making gravy and enjoy the fried fish with green (coriander or mint) chutney.

Preparation Time: 7 – 10 minutes
