Green chutney seared Tilapia fillet

Tilapia is a white mild fish. Easy to prepare and eat. I have tried different techniques in making tilapia. But todays technique is different. I have  combined different herbs, lime juice with ginger garlic paste rubbed spices.

2 medium sized tilapia fillet
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tblsp ginger/garlic paste
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 tblsp grounded herbs( 1/2 cup  cilantro, 3/4 mint leaves, 3 or 4 strands fenugreek leaves, 7/8 basil leaves). Grind all herbs with little water to make paste. Leftover store in the fridge and use within few days.

Note: Marinate fish with all the above spices and herbs overnigjt

Preparation: In a medium sized pan, add 1 tblsp vegetable oil. When oil hot enough, add marinated fish slowly without splashing oil on yourself. Cook 3 minutes on each side or till slightly brown.

Thanks mom for giving me excellent tips on making delicious fish and other goodies. You are the best mom, a person like me can have.

Serve hot with rice, dal and amla pickle!
