My mom used to prepare stuffed fish fry particularly with Croaker fish or in Udupi, Mangalore it’s called Kallur fish.
Croaker / Kallur fish is a fleshy fish but a bit bland in taste. The Masala in this recipe is spicy and tangy, which will make this fish fry amazing.

Stuffed Fish Fry of Croaker Fish

In this recipe, the fish is sliced ( images are shown below in the recipe section) and the masala paste is stuffed inside generously and also from outside. Then it is tied around with a fine thread so that while frying it shouldn’t open.
Before serving the stuffed fish fry, the thread must be removed else it will become messy while eating.
