Fish Amritsari

Preparing Fish Marinade:

250 gms fish fillets
2 tsp ginger garlic pastes
1 tsp black pepper powder
½ tsp salt
Juice of 1 lime

Boil fish in 1 cup water for 2-3 minutes. Remove water. That helps in removing smell partially.
Add salt, pepper, ginger garlic paste and lime juice. Mash everything well and marinate for 2-3 hours.

For Besan Batter :
2 tbsp besan
1 tsp ajwain
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
Pinch of turmeric powder
1/4th tsp red chili powder
Pinch of baking powder

Add just enough water and make a thick batter.
Heat oil for deep frying. Make small thin patties of fish , dip in besan batter and slide into hot oil. Fry on both sides till golden brown.
Remove and place the fish in tissue paper to remove excess oil.

Take footlong or brown bread slices. Apply mayonnaise on inner side of bread. Slice some tomato into thin slices. Place over bread, add some chopped pickles and salad leaves. Can put some hot ketchup and enjoy fish amritsari as a sandwich
