Time: 40 minutes


  • 7 fish fillets
  • 2 onion
  • 1 tablespoon red chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon butter
  • water as required
  • 2 tomato
  • chilli flakes as required
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • salt as required
  • 9 leaves coriander leaves


  • Start by pre-heating the oven at a temperature of 350 degree Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix lime juice
  • with red chili powder. Now, coat the fish fillet pieces with the mixture prepared in the bowl and set aside.
  • Place these fish pieces in a greased baking tray and slide this tray in the oven for minimum 20 minutes or until
  • cooked well. Meanwhile, place a pan over medium flame and pour oil in it. Once the oil is hot enough add
  • chopped onions and saute till they turn translucent. Add chopped tomatoes to the same pan along with salt
  • and chili flakes. Cook till the tomatoes become tender.
  • Check for the fish pieces now. Take the tray out of the oven and carefully drop them in the pan along with
  • some water. Cook for another 5 minutes over medium flame and then cover the pan using a lid. Simmer it for 5
  • minutes over low flame. Remove the lid after 5 minutes and turn off the gas knob. Make sure that there is a
  • little gravy in the end. Your chili fish is now ready. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rice.
