After a few months I am again coming to my kitchen with a different recipe. This one is a very old one which I used to make and serve in dinner parties. That is Fish pakoda. It is suitable as a starter or a delicious accompaniment for Pulav varieties. Usually I make this with Vral meen. Koduva also suits very well. But I personally think that Kingfish is little bit smelly. Now we can go in to the recipe!
Fish pieces -750 gm
Finely chopped green chillies-2
Red chilli powder- 1 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- half sp
Ginger garlic paste- half sp
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander- 2 tbsp
Lime juice- 2 tsp
Enough oil to cook and deep fry.
For the batter:
Gram flour- 1 cup
Chilli powder-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Enough water to make batter
Wash the fish pieces, and add the lime juice, little salt and the turmeric powder.
Mix well and let it soak for 20 minutes.
Now wash again the pieces and all the odour will go out.
Boil the pieces with enough water.
When they are cooked, drain out the water.
Remove the skin of the fish pieces and take out the flesh cleanly.
Mash them like bread crumbs.
Heat a kadai and pour 3 tbsp of oil.
Add the onions and fry them well with the GG paste and the green chillies.
Then add the fish with coriander leaves, salt and the powders.
Cook on slow fire for 5 minutes mixing well in intervals.
Allow it to cool.
For the batter, beat well the egg.
Add the gram flour, chilli powder and salt.
Add enough water to make a batter like dosa batter.
Now add the cooked fish and mix well.
In hot oil, drop spoonfuls of batter.
Fry them to golden brown.
Enjoy these starters with your beloved ones!
