Fish Manchurian-another excellent Indo-Chineese dish from Shynee.Fish lovers must try this,it goes well with almost anything be it roti,fried rice whatever.Even kids will love it.
Thanks a bunch for this one,Shynee .I blindly followed her recipe with cat fish fillets and it goes like..
Fish fillets cut into small pieces- 250 gms
Ginger-Garlic paste – 25 gms of ginger + 10 gms of garlic
Chopped Garlic – 15 gms
Green Chillies chopped -4
Red Pepper sauce – 2 tbsp
Soya Sauce -1 and 1/2 tbsp
Tomato Sauce – 2 tbsp
Corn flour -3 tsp
All purpose flour/Maida – 3/4 tbsp
Milk – 4 tbsp
Spring Onion -a bunch
Pepper powder -1 tsp for the batter +1 tsp for marinating fish pieces
Salt – to taste
Oil – for deep frying fish pieces+ 2tsp for sauteing
Mix together pepper powder and salt and marinate fish pieces in it for 10 mts.Then cook the fish pieces adding 3 tbsps of milk.As Shynee suggested I microwaved it for 7-8 mts.Reserve it for later use.
Beat egg well,slowly add all purpose flour and corn flour into it ,beat it again to a smooth batter.Stir in pepper powder,ginger -garlic paste,1 tbsp milk and salt.(Consider the`saltiness of Soya sauce while adding salt).Keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan ,dip each cooked fish piece into the reserved batter ,and then dip it in the oil.Fry all sides well till brown.Transfer it into a tissue paper and keep it aside.
Heat 2 tsp oil in another pan and saute chopped garlic,green chilly an spring onion till everything turn translucent.Mix in all the sauces and cook for a minute.Now add fried fish pieces and mix it well .Egg-cornflour mixture can also be added into it ,if you like the gravy to be thick.Garnish with some chopped coriander leaves and serve it hot.
