1 lb. Tilapia Fillets or 2 Fillets (I used tilapia but any fish can be used)
1 tbsp. Chili Powder (adjust to taste)
1 tsp. Salt (adjust to taste)
½ – ¾ tsp. Carom Seeds ~ Ajwain (I used ½ tsp.)
3 tbsp. Ginger Garlic Paste
3 – 4 tsp. Lime Juice
½ – ¾ cup Gram Flour ~ Besan
1 – 2 tsp. Chaat Masala or as need to sprinkle on the fish
Onion Slices and Mint leaves for garnish
Wash and cut fish into pieces or as desired. Pat & dry the fish on a paper towel.
Take fish into a bowl, ad chili powder, salt, carom seeds, ginger garlic paste, lime juice, gram flour and mix well.
If time permits, marinate for 30 minutes to an hour. I set it aside for 10 – 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan for deep frying the fish pieces.
Just before frying, add egg to the fish mixture and mix well. Once the oil is hot, add few pieces to oil and deep fry until golden brown or done. Fish cooks very fast, it should take 2 – 4 minutes on medium flame.
