How to make Fish pakora / Fish fritters

  1. Make sure the fish fillets are washed and cleaned. If the pieces are too large cut to make them bite sized. Pat dry and keep aside.
  2. In a large bowl add ginger and garlic pastes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powders, red chilli powder, salt and juice of 1 lemon. Add the besan and mix well to make a thick batter.
  3. Add the fish fillets to this batter and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Heat oil in a kadhai, make sure you add sufficient oil to deep fry the fillets.
  5. Slowly glide the well coated fish in the hot oil and fry till its nice and golden.
  6. Make sure you add only 2 to 3 fillets to the hot oil to fry so as to prevent any over crowding.
My Tip: Patting dry the fillets help it to absorb the batter better. Add more lal mirch for spicy taste and red colour.
