Viral Meen Varuval, how to prepare simple tamilnadu style fish fry recipe using murrel fish / butter fish. Viral meen, a fresh water variety, should be cleaned well since it is a slippery fish. The same set of ingredients can be used to marinate any other sea water or fresh water fish varieties.
It is best to get viral meen cleaned by fish selling vendor. Rub it with salt and wash under running water. Wash it well and marinate with sambar powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder, lemon juice and salt. Fish fry has always been my favorite rather than preparing fish curry. Just a plate of rice, rasam and fish fry makes a simple and delicious meal.
