Fried Fish Indian Style

I come from New Delhi. Delhi is not close to water or any big river. The Yamuna River which flows through Delhi is now a days not more than a big sewage. That is why we do not have any fish eating culture in Delhi and we get very less variety of fishes in Delhi. But we do get a fish called Rohu. It is fresh water fish and is grown around Delhi in small ponds. This fish is from carp family and if you cannot get Rohu then you can use other fish of the carp family. Always use rice flour in the batter otherwise the fish won’t come out crispy.

Ingredients:

  1. Fish fillets: 1 pound or 450 grams.
  2. Rice flour: ½ cup.
  3. Wine Vinegar: 2 Tbsp.
  4. Mustard seeds Grounded: 1 Tsp.
  5. Fenugreek Seeds Grounded: ½ Tsp.
  6. Garlic Cloves: 3
  7. Ginger: 1 inch piece.
  8. Water: 3 Tbsp.
  9. Masala Blend: 2 Tbsp. ( For masala Blend click http://indianchef.hubpages.com/hub/Masala-Blend-Recipe)
  10. Black Pepper Grounded: ½ Tsp.
  11. Salt: ½ Tsp.
  12. Oil: 1 ½ cups to fry.

Method:

  1. Cut the fish in to quarters.
  2. Now in the blender grind garlic and ginger to make a paste. You might need little bit of water to do it.(You can also use ginger garlic paste)
  3. Now put this ginger garlic paste in a bowl.
  4. Add vinegar, salt, all the spices and water and mix well.
  5. Now add rice flour and mix well till a thick paste is formed.
  6. Now add the fish pieces in the bowl and rub the paste on all sides of the fish.
  7. Make sure that fish is coated by the rice flour mix evenly.
  8. Cover it and leave it for 45 minutes so the fish is properly marinated.
  9. Now take a frying pan with heavy base.
  10. Heat oil in it on medium heat.
  11. Now put 4 pieces of fish at a time in the oil and cook it.
  12. Turn over the fish when bottom side is cooked.
  13. Cook till it is golden brown on both sides.
  14. Serve hot with chutney or ketch up.

Tip:

  1. Rice flour and all the ingredients are available at all Indian stores or on eBay and amazon.com
  2. For Masala blend recipe click here.
  3. Do not use high heat to cook fish as it might burn it.

      Peggy thanks for the continued support for me. India though has a very vast coastline but mainland India do not have much fresh water and thus we are always running short of water. What ever water we have is wasted.

      I love fish, especially fixed with so many flavors. The recipe sounds amazing and your photographs entice the taste buds! I have some cod in the freezer and think I will give this recipe a try. Thank you for sharing your traditional cooking methods with us. Voted up and shared---Lisa

      Gave this recipe of yours 5 stars. It sounds really flavorful with all of the marinating spices. After reading this, now I understand why you are so impressed with all of the water that we have in the United States. Of course we have some regions with desert...but much of our country has access to water. Where we live in Houston, Texas we have an abundant source of both sea and fresh water fishes. A bottom feeding fish that we love to eat is catfish. It would be good using your recipe. Up and useful votes and will share.
