Fish Pakoras

FISH PAKORAS

Hi, welcome dear wordpress buddies to my food corner again. As we all know fish is a very prominent and in some places staple food item which is made in many different ways. And so today I will be making a very crunchy and tasty recipe of fish pakoras. It is not prawn pakora nor is it Amritsari machchi but it is a pakora made from small variety fish like backwater fish or sardine. In my recipe, I have used sardines which I had left in my fridge. It is quite an experimental dish that I have made as this idea crossed my mind. Alternately you can bake it also. It is a good snack recipe and can be made for get-togethers and house parties. It is really a fun dish which can be made with any variety of small fish.

Ingredients:

  1. Small variety fish like sardine, backwater fish – 250 gms.
  2. Chickpea flour – 250 gms.
  3. Onions(finely chopped) – 1/2 bowl or 1 (big).
  4. Green Chillies(finely chopped) – 3.
