Fish Pakora

Fish pakora is a type of Indian fried snack or side dish prepared fish dipped in batter made from gram flour and then deep-fried.


Pakora is a type of Indian fried snack usually prepared with vegetables such as onion, eggplants, potatoes, plantains, tomatoes, spinach; meat such as fish and chicken; and/or paneer where it is dipped in batter made from gram flour and then deep-fried. With the vast varieties of vegetables and meat there are endless types of pakora but the most popular ones are the aloo pakora (potato) and pyaaz pakora (onions).

Usually served as a snack or an appetizer this a popular street food in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal. Typically served with Masala chai and accompanied with tamarind, chutney and/or raita. Today we are making a fish version and instead of an appetizer I will be serving it as a side, perfectly paired with any curry and some basmati rice.

    What a great snack! I never think of snacking on fish, but I could definitely snack on this. I also see topping a salad with some bites. Thanks Raynund, this is a great recipe!
