Mix red chillies, turmeric powder, chopped green chillies, chopped ginger, chopped garlic, chopped curry leaves, chopped shallots, salt and lime juice to a thick paste.
After cleaning the fish, apply a layer of the paste on the inside and on the outside nicely.
Wrap the fish in the banana leaf and tie it with the stem.
Heat oil in pan and place the wrapped fish in it.
Cook each side for 5-6 minutes.
