Wash the fish fillets, pat them dry, and cut them in half length wise. Sift the garam masala, turmeric, chickpea flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper into a bowl. Add the coriander and combine; spread the mixture onto a plate. Dip fish fillets into the egg and spiced flour, shaking off excess coating. Heat 3/4 inch depth of oil in a frying pan.
