Spicy poached fish is a simple and spicy recipe with zero oil. My friend Pravin has tried this recipe at home using a ready made fish fry masala which came out delicious. I tried this with the home made masala (gram flour with ground Indian spices and lemon juice) which came out simply superb. We have not used oil while cooking this dish.
