'Tandoori spiced' Tilapia Fish bites

Now that I am back to my 'Non vegeterian' self...well almost!! ....My head is spinning all sorts of delicious non-veg recipe ideas. Last night...to go along with the Pasta dinner...made these Spicy 'Tandoori spiced' Tilapia bites. Since Tilapia cooks like a breeze...did the cooking on a stove top pan.But you can always bake these in the oven.
Here is a Salmon Tikka recipe from early this year:

20 bite size cut up square pieces of Tilapia. Salmon would work better in this recipe as it is sturdier.
2tsp Yogurt
2tsp Tandoori Chicken masala
1tsp Red chili powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1tbsp chopped cilantro

1) Mix yogurt, spices, chopped cilantro and salt.
2)Marinate the fish pieces in the yogurt+spice mixture.Keep in refrigerator 15 mins
3) Heat anon stick pan. Add few drops of oil.Place the fish squares and cook till slight brown. Turn them gently and cook on the other side. Tilapia breaks easily.So be gentle.Salmon won't break so easily.
4)  Remove from pan gently and place in the serving platter.Garnish with cilantro.Serve hot!
