In a plate, mix red chilli powder, turmeric, water and salt into a fine paste. Coat the fish steaks evenly and marinate for at least half an hour.
Line the baking tray with parchment paper while your oven is preheating at 180° C for about 10 minutes. Once ready, place the marinated fish steaks on the tray and fry on grill mode for about 7 minutes.
Flip the fish after 7 minutes and fry for another 7 minutes on the other side. Once the colour changes to brown, brush some oil on the steaks and bake for 5 minutes on each side.
Garnish with black pepper powder and lemon juice. Serve hot with mint and coriander chutney.
Avoid overcooking the fish, as it will become hard and chewy. You can use your favourite fish (firm) too other than pomfret for this recipe.
