While I love pretty much any Indian food, I find their fried fish to be something out of this world. I have actually heard people who had masala fried fish for the first time say that this is the best thing they have ever eaten! This South Indian style fried fish is very aromatic and flavourful, crunchy on the outside, but juicy inside, slightly tangy, with a nice kick from chillies and garnished with sweet caramelized onions. It goes well together in a meal with curries with gravy or can be served by itself with plain rice or green salad. You can use pomfret or any other flat fish as well as sardines. Do I really need to mention how excellent it is with cold beer...? =)
