Vanjaram fish fry is my favorite and we make it often for Sunday lunch. Fish should be a part of healthy diet as it has more nutrients. Fish fry is the best way to make kids eat fish and also this recipe has less oil as its tawa fried. It's simple and quick to make. It goes well with sambar or rasam. We had it with fish Kuzhambu, the perfect combination for lunch!
