Battered Amritsari sole

27 Jan






… well, fish anyway! A very quick and tasty fish dish, supplemented by more naan and some chickpeas in a spicy tomato sauce.

The fish was marinades in lemon juice with garlic,  ground ginger, pepper and salt. A batter mix of gram flour, chilli powder,  baking powder, more ginger and garlic and carom/ajwain seeds. The fish was coated in the batter and fried for less than a minute per side.

To go alongside, I fried a couple of dried chillies, some mustard seeds and a green cardomom, added a tin of chickpeas, half tin of tomatoes and some turmeric and garam masala. Mrs M requested a bay leaf too. A slightly random but nice accompaniment. With some more of Mrs M’s excellent naan and some chutney finished it off well. She scored it 8.5 out of 10.
