Nei Meen Varuval Recipe, today we will see an easy and simple fish fry recipe using nei meen / seer fish / black vanjaram.
The ingredients used to marinate fish cubes are sambar powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder, cumin powder, rice flour, coriander powder and lemon juice. You can either deep fry or shallow fry them. Since this fish contains high mercury content, pregnant ladies should consume it moderately.
Fry nei meen carefully as they tend to break easily. I haven’t used this fish to prepare curries, but soon will try that too. You can either use fillets or cubes to prepare varuval. Some of the ingredients which you can also use to marinate are 2 tsp ground curry leaf or mint paste.
