Fish Finger | Fish Finger with Indian Spices | Starter Recipe

Fish finger, one of the famous finger food among kids.It's so crispy on outside and very soft fish inside.In our home, i rarely make this, not because we dont like this,but we prefer to have tangy fish curry instead of fries.
Though i had fish finger in restaurant many times, in my kitchen, i tried out twice before.Last month i was very much tempted to try this fish finger because i had wonderful boneless tilapia fillet at that time and it turns out very delicious. So to post here, today i make this again and we enjoyed it throughly.After a hearty meal, i'm here with the post.

  • Usually i dont use the left over oil after frying the fish, so used little and fry one piece at a time. But if you're using more oil, add more fishes at a time for frying.
  • Tap it with fingers to remove the excess flour & bread crumbs on the fish before frying.
  • Curry leaves gives great flavor  to the dish.
