Batter fried fish ( meen fry)
For seafood lovers this is one fantastic recipe. I used merou(dusky grouper) in this recipe. This is a very quick and easy. The batter can be prepared before hand itself( batter can be preserved in the refrigerator for a day or two). This is so crisp on the outside, juicy and succulent on the inside. Here goes the recipe...
Egg white - 1 nos
sparkling water - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour( maida) - 1 tbsp
corn flour - 1 tbsp
ginger- garlic paste - 1 tbsp
chilly powder - 1 tbsp
salt for taste( ajinomoto can be used)
Fish slices - 6 nos
Oil for deep frying
Lime juice( optional)
Mix egg white along with sparkling water slowly. Now add this to a mixture of maida, corn flour, chilly powder, ginger-garlic paste form a batter of pouring consistency. Check for salt and add as per requirement. Dip the fish slices and deep fry in hot oil for 10 min or until its cooked. Serve hot with a dash of lime juice squeezed over the fish.
Even fish fillets may be used. Fish can be of your choice like pomfret fillets, sole fillets, king fish, etc..
