Healthy Fish fry recipe Indian style||Granny in the kitchen


Many contemporary foods have evolved but none can hit the authentic foods which are being from ages. The utensils, archaic stoves, the ground spices and methods which people follow and use in the olden times are worthy enough. Such archaic techniques of cooking are the sole reason behind such delightful and scrumptious dishes.

Today I’m in the kitchen with my Granny to savor my most favorite dish, “Fish Fry” cooked by my Grandma. Definitely Yay!!


Health factors of fried fish

We know that the fish which is rich in unsaturated Omega 3 fatty acids has lots of health benefits like lowering the risk of heart diseases, blood pressure and improving the immunity system and flow of blood. Consuming fish twice a week is so good for health.


Then how about a deep fried fish?


 Of course, fish is deep fried in much oil which is high in fat and increases bad cholesterol levels. Too much oil also increases several health problems like heart attack, diabetes, bloating stomach, breathing problems and so on. So, we need to be conscious of two things; 1. Consume fried fish once in while and 2. Fry the fish with lesser oil content.

However, fried fish also has some nutritional facts.
