In a wide plate or bowl, add curd, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, coriander powder, ginger garlic paste, salt, curry leaves and mix well. 

add pepper powder to it and mix again. preferably freshly ground pepper powder. 

clean and keep the fresh fish pieces ready. place the pieces one by one and apply the masala on all sides of fish. 

repeat the process for all the pieces. refrigerate for an hour or more. overnight is also best. take out the pieces and fry in tawa with little oil.  

turn sides when it is roasted on one side. keep the flame to medium on roast again. if required add more oil and cook. you can leave out that char or serve with it. we like that as well and serve it along with the deep roasted parts. 

serve the delicious and simple fish fry hot with onions and lemon.
