  • Instead of whole fishes, you can use fish chunk as well. 
  • If tamarind is not available use 2 Tbsp. Lemon juice or vinegar.
  • Instead of normal chili powder, you can use Kashmiri red chili powder.
  • Do not deep fry the fishes while making Rava fry. The fishes should be shallow fried.
  • If you are not willing to use coconut oil, use vegetable oil however, it is better not to use mustard oil and the flavor will overpower.
