  1. Put all ingredients given in "to marinate" in a large mixing bowl. Mix them well and keep aside allowing it to marinate for 30 min.
  2. In a plate, mix gram flour and bread crumbs in equal proportion. Roll the marinated fish pieces in the bread crumbs, gram flour mix.
  3. Heat oil in a kadai for frying. Fry the rolled fish pieces. Fish gets cooked faster. So fry in medium-high flame for 3-4 min to have a soft fish fingers.
Note: Roll the fish piece gently on the bread crumbs to make a layer. Hold the piece in hands and keep pressing for seconds to get the crumbs coat well on the fish pieces, roll them in hands to remove the extra crumbs. this note helps to avoid oil becoming black while frying.
