A great way to enjoy fish of any sort, deep fried fish fillets coated with a combination of spices and gram flour..
½ kg fish fillets
3 tbsp lemon Juice (or vinegar)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp anardana (optional)
1 tsp red chili flakes
½ tsp Ajwain
1 tsp dry roasted, crushed Cumin seeds
1 tsp dry roasted, crushed Coriander seeds
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp qasoori methi
Few drops of yellow food color (optional)
4 tbsp gram flour /baisan or a little more for coating each fillet lightly
1) To remove the smell from fish, apply lemon juice and salt over your fish fillets and then rinse after 30 minutes. Clean the fish fillets and gently pat them dry. This is very important; the fish should not be watery at all.
2) Mix together all the masala except gram flour and chaat masala and apply it all over the fish pieces, let the fish marinate for 4-5 hours.
3) Once the marination is over, apply baisan, and shake off thee excess, remember we don’t need to add any water to gram flour (baisan)
4)Heat oil in a heavy based frying pan and shallow fry the fish pieces, don’t move the fillets a lot while frying, otherwise the light coating will come off .Once fried sprinkle chaat masala on top. Serve hot with imli ki chutney/ mint chutney and naans.
