Fish Fry Indian Style

When ever I prepare this curry, I remember the lady at Apple bees (Restaurant In America), she is a waitress. It was my first visit to this restaurant, when we (me and my hubby) were given menu cards I was seriously searching for vegetarian (Veggie) item, but to my surprise I could not find single item. So, my hubby asked the waitress if she could help us in ordering any veggie item for us, and here is the most interesting part of the story she suggested the items in the menu that contain fish. Perfect! right, to her fish is a veggie food, then I asked her to suggest the item that contains no meat, then she said that's what I am saying you can have these(that contain fish) items they do not contain meat. I struggled a lot to explain her what veggie means according to me, finally I have to order a mushroom pizza (No problem! Pizza is always my first priority). And there the story ends, BTW in India, I heard that Calcutta people do consider fish as a veggie. But according to me, I do not agree! I made this fry for my hubby, he loved it, hope you like it too!!

Easy fish fry in Indian style

Fish slices ( I used the frozen salmon)- 4 large
Cumin powder-1tbsp
coriander powder-2tbsp
red chili powder to taste
salt to taste
Lemon juice-2tbsp
garam masala-pinch
turmeric powder-1tea spoon
Feenu greek powder-1/2tbsp
and oil for frying

Clean fish pieces, remove skin if present. Wash them and drain all water by pating with paper towel, Now cut the fish pieces into 1inch thickenss each.

Mix all the above mentioned ingredients in 4tbsp of oil and apply on both sides of the fish pieces. 
Refrigerate for about 2hrs.

Heat 3tbso of oil in a  pan and fry this pieces untill they turn golden brown on both sides.

Add more oil if necessary.

 Do not distrub pieces frequently, since they are delicate they break easily. Here are the delicious fish fry ready to serve!!!!

Remember, when ever you marinate any kind of meat do not forget to add lemon juice. Research, shows that marinated meat with lemon juice has less carcinogens compared to unmarinated meat.

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
