Lepa tawa fry / Sole fish tawa fry

Hello dear readers! Today I will share the recipe of  Lepa fish tawa fry. Since I decided to make separate posts for every fish I will share the recipe in the space as and when I can. Lepa or Nung  means Sole fish. Fish is good for health and  tawa fried is always healthier  over deep fried ones. But it is absolutely fine to indulge deep fried dishes once in a while.  Same recipe may be prepared with  fish of your choice. I have started to add ajwain in most of my fish fry preparations since a year. Ajwain is very good for digestion and also gives a restaurant touch.

Kashmiri chilly powder or Malwani powder – 2 tbsp

Asafoetida – 2 pinches
