Stuffed Fish


Hello and welcome once again to my cozy corner. Today I’m sharing a recipe of stuffed fish which is definitely a tastier and easier one. It is prepared in no time and if not using oil, can be baked too. You can use anything as filling here, apart from carrot and panir. It is a sumptuous delight which sure will become your favorite. So let’s start with it—

Ingredients:-For the marination of the fish

  1. Fish(Indian Mackerel)-3
  2. Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
  3. Salt-According to taste
  4. Garlic Paste-1 tsp

For the filling:

  1. Indian Cottage Cheese or Panir-100 gms
  2. Carrot(grated)-1 cup
  3. Onion-1
  4. Green Chillies-2
  5. Ginger-Garlic Paste-1 tsp
  6. Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
  7. Red Chilly Powder-1 tsp
  8. Garam Masala-1 tsp
  9. Dry Mango Powder-1 tsp
  10. Salt-According to taste
  11. Dried Mint Leaves-5-6
  12. Vegetable Oil-2 tbsp


Step 1


To start with our recipe, I will wash and slit the fish on one side and marinate them with salt, turmeric powder, and garlic paste. I have used the fish variety of Indian Mackerel here, but you can use any other variety too, but the fish must be of the small variety.

Step 2

To make the filling, I will grate the carrot and mix it with the panir. Now I will take a pan and add oil. Next, I will add the chopped onions, green chillies and add ginger-garlic paste. I will fry again. Now I will add my seasonings, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder,garam masala, dry mango powder, and fry the masalas. Then I will add the batter of carrot and panir in it along with some cashews and raisins and fry for a minute. Lastly, I will add some dried mint to give that extra taste. You can alternately add fresh mint or cilantro too.

Step 3


I will fill the above-made batter into the fish from the slit that we made earlier and shallow fry it in a wok.

Our Stuffed Fish is done. It can be served with salad, and green chutney or mayonnaise.
