Fish and chips

Whenever we went to our parents during vacations, our dad used to take us to his company club and this was one of my favorite items on their menu. When hit with a fierce bout of nostalgia, I just had to have this . I had no idea about the original recipe, so I winged it and I am sure I will definitely make this again....

This is not the traditional fish and chips recipe.

Fish Fillets - 500 gms (I used King/Surmai fish)
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste

Few drops of oil

Marinate the fish in all the ingredients and keep for atleast 20 minutes. Dust the pieces with 1 tsp of plain flour/ corn flour just a minute before frying.

Shallow fry the fish. Since the fish was very very fresh, I did not overpower it with too much seasoning.

I also blanched some broccoli and peas, sauteed in butter and made french fries. A few slices of tomatoes.

I also made a dip

Mix mayonnaise and curd in the ratio 1:2. A pinch of salt, a spring onion finely diced and a few drops of tomato ketchup.

Toast some bread and voila...a very nice dinner is ready!!!!


  1. Love the combo. I used to eat lot of Fish and chips in England, beer battered Cod. Looks good S!:)

  3. I remember a restaurant that we went to when I was a kid that served fish and chips in those little boats with the paper lining. It was sooooo good.
