Fish Pakora

It is a popular snack specially in winters. They say fish keeps you warm. It is not very spicy so kids enjoy it as well.
Here is how you can make it.


Fish                                   1 lbs boneless fillets
Chickpea flour                   1 1/2 cups
Salt                                    1 1/4 tsp
Crushed red chili                3/4 tsp
Cumin seeds                       1 tsp
Cumin powder                    1 tsp
Coriander seeds                 1 tsp
Dry fenugreek leaves          1/2 tsp
Baking soda                       1 pinch
Garam Masala                    1/4 tsp
Carom seeds                       1/8 tsp
Water                                 as required
Oil                                      for frying


  1. Cut fish fillets in 1 inch cubes. I used basa but you can use any white flesh fish easily available.
  2. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp of salt on the fillets and let sit for 10 mins.
  3. Dry roast cumin and coriander seeds and crush them just till they crack.
  4. Add chickpea flour and all the spices including baking soda in a bowl and add enough water to make a paste. It should be pour-able but not watery. At this stage you can taste for salt and spices.
  5. Add fish pieces and coat them well with chickpea mixture.
  6. Heat the oil in a wok on medium heat.
  7. Add fish pieces one by one making sure they are coated from all sides.
  8. Cook till you can see it browning from the edges, flip the over and cook the other side.
  9. Take them out on paper towel and serve hot with hot cup of tea.
