This grilled dish is best savoured with coriander chutney and tastes really good when garnished with lemon and served with salad.

Ingredients:

Salmon fish skinned and boned: 150 gram

Whitefish skinned and boned: 250 grams

Salt: ½ Tablespoon

Lemon Juice: 1 Tablespoon

Garlic: 1

Mustard oil : 3-4 Tablespoon

Gram flour: 2 Tablespoon

Grated Ginger: 4cm piece

Finely chopped Green Chillies: 2

Fresh Coriander chopped: Handful

Black Peppercorns: 1 tablespoon

Turmeric powder: ½

How to Make:

Step 1: Cut the fish into chunks then marinate it with salt and lemon juice.

Step 2: Place the marinated fish in a steamer with garlic that’s partly crushed and add lemon juice.

Step 3: Cook the fish in the steamer for 5-7 minutes then remove from the heat and leave it to cool down.

Step 4: Place most of the steamed fish and garlic into a food processor and blend it until smooth. Keep some of the steam fish aside so that it can be used as larger chunks for a richer texture.

Step 5: Place all the fish in a large bowl and keep that aside.

Step 6: Toast gram flour in a frying pan for around 5 minutes until it reaches a shade darker and leaves a slightly sweet fragrance.

Step 7: Now take out that bowl with the fish and add ginger, salt, green chilli, coriander, pepper, turmeric and toasted gram flour. Stir thoroughly to combine all the ingredients well and then refrigerate for 15-20 minutes. After taking the mixture out, make small Kebab.

Step 8:  Heat mustard oil in the frying pan to smoking point and then remove from the heat and wait for it to cool down. Once cooled, reheat it gently to the cook fish.

Step 9: Fry the kebabs for 1-2 minutes from all sides until crispy and golden brown.

Step 10: Serve with salad, rice or burger buns with a dollop of tomato or coriander chutney.
