Packing and Cleaning are going in full swing.Just 10 more days to start to India.Our paretns are eagerly waiting to see all of us.Shopping is just started.India ,here I come.Going to miss Dallas very much .Blogging will be at low pace ,when I am in India.Though I have posts in draft,have to find time to write the posts.Friends kindly bare with me,if I am not commenting .Will soon get back to you once I settle in India.
I was bored with usual,fish curry,fish fry,fish cutlet,fish figure, wanted to try something tangy and sweet. So prepared this Sweet chilli fish for a change.It came out very well.I used cod fish fillet. We can use any fish fillet for this. Similarly we can prepare shrimp .Make your Sunday interesting by preparing this dish.
1.Cod fish fillets - 4
2.Curry powder - 1 tbsp.
3.Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
4.Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
5.Lemon juice - 2 tsp
6.Corn flour - 1 tsp
7.Salt - To taste
8.Oil - For frying
9.Green onion - for garnishing
For the sauce:
1.Ginger - 1 inch piece( minced)
2.Garlic pods - 4 (minced)
3.Red chilli flakes - 1tsp.
4.Chilli paste - 1 tbsp.
5.Honey - 1 bsp
6.Water - as needed
7.Vinegar - 1/2 tsp(optional)
* Wash and cut the fillets into fingure shaped pieces.Take a mixing bowl,add curry powder,ginger garlic paste,turmeric powder,lemon juice,salt and mix well.Now add the fish pieces and marinate it for atleast 1 hour.But I marinated over night.
When we are about to fry the fish,just coat them with corn flour.Take a pan of oil and heat it .When the oil is medium hot,fry the fish pieces and drain them on a paper towel as shown in picture.
* Take a wide pan,add little oil and sauté minced ginger and garlic. Add chilli paste,chilli flakes,vinegar and give it a stir.Red chilli flakes can be made at home ,by grinding red chillies in a blender.
* Now add salt and water to reach our required consistency.Now add the fried fish into the sauce.If we want to add soy sauce,we can add it to the sauce.At last add honey and mix well.The amount of honey can be altered to our taste. Adjust the spice and salt according to our taste . At last add chopped green onion for garnishing.
We can use any fish fillet for this.I like adding honey,but if you don't prefer to use honey,then just skip it. This was a different combo from usual,fish fry,fish fingures and fish cutlet. Don't fry the fish too crispy,then it will not blend with the sauce.We can also use garam masala to the marination.
