Fish pakora

Fish pakora

Sometime ago I bought this book about Indian cooking*, and there was a recipe very similar to this one… I adapted it to our taste, hoping that it still stays Indian enough ;-). You will need fillets of a fish that   has a firm meat if you don’t want to end up with fish and chickpea flour patties…


  • rosefish
  • turmeric
  • chillipowder
  • peppercorns
  • lemon/lime juice
  • spring onion
  • coriander
  • salt


  1. prepare the marinade for the fish by mixing turmeric, chillipowder and lime and lemon juice;
  2. add the fish, cut into strips (about 2cm thick), cover it and put it in the fridge for 1 hour;
  3. prepare a thick batter with the same amount of water and chickpea flour, add the roughly crushed peppercorns, the finely chopped spring onion and coriander, season to taste;
  4. dip the fish into the batter and fry.
