Spaghetti With Fish


Hello, and welcome everyone to my cooking corner again. Hope you all are having a good day.Sorry for a late post. I was on a ceremonial leave to Gujarat as it was my youngest son Priyam Shankar Jha’s marriage. I was very busy and I had a grand event completed successfully. I am very happy that my family has extended by the addition of one more beautiful daughter younger to Ambika, Khushbu Jhaveri, Priyam’s wife. The event was a small family affair but was lots of fun and festivities and I am so proud that my association and bonding with Gujarat has really become deeper as my daughter-in-law is a Gujarati. Coming back to our cooking corners, today I am going to share a recipe of Spaghetti With Fish. It is a simple recipe with mild flavors and taste and with some twist of an Indian tadka too. Hope you like it. So let’s start with the recipe—

  7. Sugar – A pinch
  8. Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp(optional)
  9. Red Chilly Powder – 1/4 tsp
  10. Garam Masala -1/2 tsp
  11. Sambhar Powder – 1/2 tsp
  12. Salt – According to taste

For the marination of fish:-

  1. Fish Fillets – 150 gms

Step 1

DSC03638.jpgBoil water in a vessel. Add some vegetable oil and salt in it and let it come to a boil. Now break the spaghetti and drop it in. Let it cook making sure it does not get mushy. Boil till firm but cooked. It will take approximately not more than 2 minutes to do this.

Step 2

Wash and cut the fish into bite-sized pieces. You can choose any variety of fillets, but here I have chosen Tilapia fish fillets. Marinate it in salt, turmeric powder, and garlic paste. Fry it in a pan till browned.

Step 3

Take a pan and add the above mentioned tempering in it. Now add the finely chopped onions and green chilies and fry for two minutes. When the onion is half fried add the spices, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, sambhar powder,garam masala, sugar and fry for half a minute. Add the cashew and peanuts.

Step 4

Our simple Spaghetti With Fish is done. Garnish it with a sprinkling of raisins and a dash of some lemon juice. You can add your choice of nuts, sauces, and a mixture of mayonnaise with the mustard sauce though it is optional.
