Chilli Fish

If you are bored of the usual fish fry and want to try something else for a fish side dish, then this recipe is a must try.

I have used Red Snapper (known as Chemballi in Malayalam) in this recipe but any other fish can be used. I have tried tuna as well and it works very well for this recipe.

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 kg fish  : cut into 1 inch cubes (boneless is a plus, but i used red snapper which had bones)
  • 2 medium sized onions : cut julienne
  • 1 capsicum : cut julienne
  • 1 tspoon diced ginger and garlic
  • 1 tbspoon soya sauce
  • 1 tbspoon chilli sauce
  • 1 tbspoon tomato sauce

To make batter to coat the fish :

  • 2 tbspoon cornflour
  • 1 tbspoon all purpose flour
  • ginger garlic paste
  • pepper powder
  • salt

Procedure :

  • Clean the fish. Keep aside. (For better taste, marinate the fish pieces with spices overnight and refrigerate or marinate for a few hours)
  • Mix the cornflour, all purpose flour, ginger garlic paste, pepper and salt in a bowl. Add water and make a thick batter.
  • Now add the cleaned fish cubes . Coat them with salt and pepper and add them into this batter. Coat the fish evenly with the batter. Keep aside for 10 to 15 mins.
  • Shallow fry these fish pieces in a pan until golden brown. Set aside.
  • In the same pan, add the diced ginger-garlic and onions. Cook until the onion turns translucent.
  • Now add the diced capsicum. Cook for 5-7 minutes.
  • Next add the chilli sauce, soya sauce and tomato sauce. Mix well.
  • Add the fried fish pieces into this pan and mix gently.
  • Serve hot with rice 🙂
