Nutrition: per serving



  • 500 g Fish Cod
  • 100 g Gram Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Crushed Chillies
  • 2 tsp Coriander Seeds crushed
  • 1 tsp Garlic Paste
  • 1 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 1 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 100 ml Water


  • Cut the fish into bite-sized chunks
  • Add all the ingredients, except the fish, into a large bowl and whisk until a smooth batter with no lumps forms
  • Add the fish chunks into the batter and coat the fish pieces with the batter evenly
  • Heat a pan with oil for deep frying until medium-hot ensuring that the oil is not too hot – to test this you can add a small ball of the batter into the pan, and it should rise with tiny bubbles surrounding it
  • Gently add the fish into the pan – there should be tiny bubbles surrounding them – and allow them to cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes until golden brown before flipping and allowing to cook for another 2-3 minutes until golden brown on the other side
  • Serve with homemade yoghurt chutney and enjoy!
