Amritsari Fish with Salmon


amritsari fish
Amritsari Fish, a delicacy originated from Amritsar, Punjab is also a popular street food sold in the streets corner of Amritsar. I have used Salmon in this dish , you can use any white fleshed fish instead. This is an easy fried fish dish cooked in minutes with the readily available ingredients from your kitchen. Serve this as an appetizer for your cocktail party or side dish for your main course.  I prepared this dish last weekend for a Potluck party and it was an instant HIT!!!! 




Preparation time : 20 to 25 minutes

Cooking time : 10 minutes


Serves : 5











Ingredients for marination :
  • 1 lb. of boneless Salmon fillet, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup malt vinegar/any ordinary vinegar
  • Oil, for deep frying


salmon dish


Ingredients for  batter:
  • 3/4 cup gram flour/besan
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 3 tbsp juice of ginger
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp red chili powder(increase or decrease spice level to suit your taste )
  • 1 n 1/2 tsp Tandoori Chicken BBQ masala/garam masala ( I have used Tandoori masala as it adds a nice color to the dish)
  • 1 tsp carom seeds/ajwain seeds
  • juice from half a lemon
  • Salt, to taste
  • Chat masala








Directions:
  • Marinade the fish pieces with malt vinegar , keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Add all the ingredients for batter in a big bowl, mix well. Slide in the fish pieces in the batter, stir to coat the fish pieces well in the batter, let stand for another 5 to 7 minutes.
  • In the mean time, heat oil for deep frying; slide in the fish pieces in batches, not too much at a time; fry the fish pieces till it turns a bright golden brown color on both the sides.
  • Sprinkle chat masala on top and serve with onion salad and ketchup/green chutney as appetizer , can also serve as a side dish for your main course.

  27. After all I have seen, I think that India by far must have the best street food. It is always so flavorful and healthy. In addition, it is usually not something that is slapped together and prepared in 2 minutes.
    Your fish here does look wonderful. I am saving this recipe for when we do go to the specialty market for fresh fish. Fantastic post-enjoy the day!

  59. there was a time much much before i became a vegetarian that my dad would get these amritsari fish fries from the punjabi dabbas in mumbai umpteen times. i very well know the flavor and taste of it even today.

    just that now i will have to make it with a vegetarian or vegan alternative like panner or tofu.

    your pics are looking good and any fish lover is going to drool over these :-)

  60. Hi Sonali,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and dropping such a lovely comment.
    I'm not a fan of fish and sea food but I must admit youve hooked me on the first recipe. If they taste as delicious as they look (and I have no doubts they are) I might turn into a fish addict, thanks to you. And that's very healthy :)

    Your daughter is absolutely adorable.

    Kisses
