It that time of the year when you are sad it has come to an end yet happily excited to be a part of the New year and what it has to offer.

It has a light flavour and soft texture, making it perfect for adults and kids. And yes my wish came true. Thank-you!!

The soft texture of basa fillets makes them ideal for grilling, pan-frying and baking. And I decided to surprise my family on Saturday night with my hidden culinary skills. Being Indian and a lover of spice Tandoori Pan fried basa was on my mind.

Ingredients :
Two Basa fish fillets, cut into a thin long strip.
Oil for pan fry.
Channa flour – 2 Tbsp
ginger& garlic paste – 1 Tsp
Chilly powder – 1 Tsp
Everest Fish Masala – 1 Tsp
Juice of one lime
Tandoori Masala – 1 Tsp
Salt to taste.
Garnish :
Onion rings
Lemon wedges

  1. Take a deep glass bottom dish. Add all the ingredients of the marination items with a little water to make a paste.
  2.  Marinate the cut fish strips. Add them gently as fish is delicate. Mix it gently with a light hand. Keep the above marination for 1 – 3 hrs in the fridge.
  3. Take a frying pan, sprinkle very little oil and lightly shallow fry the fish on both sides cooking for two minutes on each side. The fish is tender and doesn’t need more time to cook. You can even grill the pieces of fish in over for 10 minutes.
  4. Garnish with onion rings, cilantro and a dash of lime and serve it hot and with a smile like I do.
