Serves 4-5

Tender bite sized cubes of fish, coated in a thick spicy batter and then deep fried. Resulting in the crispiest and most delicious morsels of fish imaginable. These go beautifully with any dip of choice, and make for a perfect starter or midday snack. You can as well tuck these in a wrap along with some freshly chopped salad, yum!

fish fillet, cut into bite sized pieces
2 tbsp
gram flour/besan
2 tbsp
plain/all purpose flour
2 tbsp
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
paprika powder
1 tsp.
chilli powder or chilli flakes
1/2 tsp
turmeric powder
1/2 tsp
cumin powder or coriander powder
1 tsp
garlic paste
1 tsp
ginger paste
green chillies, finely chopped
2-3 tbsp
coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp
salt, or to taste
1/4 tsp
black pepper powder
1 tsp
lemon juice
4 tbsp
water, or as needed
oil for frying

Clean and dry the fish pieces and set aside. In a bowl, mix all the other ingredients except the oil.  Add the water a tbsp at a time to form a very thick batter. Add the fish pieces in and mix well until each piece is completely coated with the batter. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Heat oil in pan, then drop in the battered fish without overcrowding the pan. Fry until golden and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes.  Remove onto kitchen towels to blot out excess oil. Serve with slices of lemon and a dip of your choice.
