Make light slits on both sides of the fish.
Prepare first marinade, a mixture of salt, half of your haldi and red chilli powder. To this add lime juice.
Put this marinade all the over the fish properly and try stuffing the slits too.
Put this in the refrigerator for 30 mins.
For 2nd marinade, soak red chilli in water for 10 mins.
In a grinder, add soaked red chilli, garlic, remaining haldi and paprika powder, salt, asofetida, jeera powder, black pepper and tamarind pulp and make fine paste.
Take the fish out of the fridge and apply some of the 2nd marinade and let it sit for 15 mins more.
Now in a pan heat coconut oil, fry the fish for 5 mins on each side on a low flame.
Remove fish from the pan, in the same pan add the remaining marinade and cook the gravy until it leaves some oil.
Finally add the fried fish, coat it with the gravy and serve hot. Enjoy as it is or with rice, dosa, biryani etc.
