Spicy Fish Fry

1 lb fish of choice ( I have used Pompano here which is very similar to Pomfrets but is a native of Florida)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour or rava(semoliona)
Oil for frying

For the dry spice rub :
1 tsp chili pwdr ( use Paprika if you don't want it hot)
1/2 tsp turmeric pwdr
1 tsp coriander pwdr
1/2 tsp cumin pwdr
1/2 tsp garlic pwdr
1/2 tsp pepper pwdr
Salt to taste
Juice of 1/2 a lime

 In a plate mix together all the dry rub ingredients .In another plate spread out the flour or semolina.
Wash and pat dry the fish pieces. Coat them evenly with the spice rub first and then coat evenly with the flour.The flour prevents the spices from splattering and burning in the oil and keeps the fish well coated.
Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the fish 3 mins on each side. Sprinkle with lime juice and serve  hot.
