Named after the city where it originated, this easy fried fish dish is a great appetizer or side dish to complement the main course.

  • 1 kg fish (any fish with firm, white flesh) cut into medium-thick slices
  • 3 tbsps ginger paste
  • 3 tbsps garlic paste
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder

  • 1 tsp chilli powder

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 1/2 cups bengal gram flour

  • Mix all the ingredients except the fish and lime wedges, in a large, shallow dish. Form a thick paste.
  • Gently fold the fish into this paste, making sure to coat each piece well. Allow to marinate for 1 hour.
