Deep fried Fish Steaks.
Maybe had as snacks, but not to forget to mouthwash after the same.
Maybe had as a side dish with any Rice and curry dish.
Something I could eat everyday, and eat too when I am home..well my parents home.
Been away to long to comfortably call it my home though I still have a huge bedroom..
Oh! Do I miss home???
Preparation of this couldn't be any simpler, but it can get real messy too.
The fish might break or it might stick to the pan or to another fish steak....
The old Non-stick teflon pan works best. ( Old means not the new ones on which you an used metal skillets and scotch brite, but old primitive ones which came with the wooden spatula. Fish won't stick to that)
Mix the 3/4 inch thick Fish steaks in a little Turmeric, and asafoetida or heeng and salt to taste.
(Well for 5 steaks, use half Tsp Turmeric and a pinch of turmeric.)
I didn't use any other masala,because it gets burned and leaves a bitter taste when the fish is deep fried. better sprinkle some garam masala and red chilli powder after the fish is fried and taken out.
Deep fry the fish in mustard oil on a flat bottom pan.
To deep fry, heat oil till... very hot. You some smoke start to come up hot.
Immediately decrease the heat and put the steak slowly, one by one into the oil.
Use a pair of tongs.
Don't let to steaks touch the other. Separate them by at least a few mm .
Fry in low heat till one side is cooked.
Turn the steaks when one side is cooked.
Second side should take shorter to cook.
But Tony!!! How do I know when the fish is cooked?
Tony: Fry till golden brown, but not dark brown..... lol
Remove on tissue paper so that excess oil is absorbed.
Sprinkle red chilli powder and some garam masala. ( I used chicken masala)
Thanks for visiting. Have a nice day.
