Just sprinkle some red chilli powder, turmeric, salt and a little bit of tamarind powder on the fish. Add a spoon of garlic paste and let it marinate for 10-15 minutes. While it marinates, make the curd coriander leave chutney. In a mixer, grind fresh coriander leaves along with two green chillies. Add this mixture to a cup of curd. Put salt as per taste and mix it well. Leave in fridge to cool for 10 minutes.

Now, in a bowl take some semolina (rava). Take the marinated fish, and dip it in the bowl of dry semolina to get an even coating of semolina on it. Now, take some oil in a pan to fry the fish. Serve it hot with the curd coriander leave chutney. This is an amazing no-carb dinner.
