Masala Fish Pakoras


You know the feeling when you crave for a certain tasting food but cannot think of A recipe? That is when such genius is created!

This recipe is an experiment that turned out to be an epic dish!

I wanted to eat simple dal and rice, but with a side of something fishy, spicy and crispy! And this is what I invented!


2 fillet of haddock or any white fish (diced into bite size pieces)

2 inches of grated ginger

5 to 8 cloves of grated garlic

2tsp turmeric

3tsp chilli powder

2tsp garam masala

1 lemon juice

2 tbsp gram / chick pea powder (also known as besan – use plain flour alternatively)

1tbsp Corn powder

2tsp dried fenugreek leaves (optional)

Salt to taste



Mix all the ingredients together and leave it to marinate for about 2 to 3 hours (only if you can plan ahead – I didn’t marinate).

Heat oil in a pan, and start frying the pieces of fish. Turn and toss until it’s cooked from inside and looks lush and crispy from outside. The trick is to put the fish in the oil when it’s hottest and then turning down the heat slightly, tossing and turning to make sure it doesn’t burn.

Serve as a side dish or complimentary snacks with some cold beverages!

Let me know how you like your fish!
