Fish Tikka

Fish is very good food. It is easily available, can cook in little or no oil. Very healthy as it is full of omega 3 fatty acid.. It is very good for heart as it reduce bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein). LDL clogs arties which lead to high blood pressure and is rich in HDL which is good lipoprotein. HDL can not only reduce LDL but also take it from the arteries and make it available for the use by the body.

Coming to Fish tikka, this is one of the authentic Indian cooking. This dish is definitely Punjabi and since there is no sea near Punjab so only fresh water fish is used in this dish. Fish Tikka is famous now in all over India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and in parts of world there is large Indian or Pakistani population like Britain. The fish used in this dish are Surmei, Singhara and you can use Salmon fish where Surmei fish is not available.

      I have always been curious about how Tikka was made, and this is great for folks who may not like fish flavor. Okay so you have now provided me with my weeks meals...These look so good, and with all the spices sound very healthy.

      Okay now that you know I am a huge fan of Indian food I am patiently waiting to learn more about Naan. I love this and would love to learn about how it came about and what makes it so incredible!

      Your new foodie fan!

      Thanks Peggy for comment and share. Surmei fish is also called king fish. So if you have that in your area, it would be wonderful.

      This fish is very easily available in Delhi markets. Since we do not come from fish eating area so we usually eat fish with no bones. This is one of the costliest fish we have in Delhi.
