Fish Pakora/Fish fritters

Today, I am going to share a very tasty snacks preparation called “Fish Pakora” or “Fish Fritters” which is just perfect as starter for parties and is equally good for  every day snack. This recipe is specially for those fish lovers who got bored with typical fish recipes. I made this fritters using Rohu fish, but any fish will go for that. It is  very easy to prepare and takes less than 15 minutes with marinated fish pieces and requires limited ingredients. Hope you will enjoy having this snack during tea time.


Fish pieces
300 gms
Ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp
Tomato sauce
1 tbsp
Soy sauce
1 tbsp
Turmeric powder
1 tsp
Red chili powder
1 tsp
½ cup
Gram flour
½ cup
Garam masala powder
1 tsp
As per taste
Oil for frying


  1. Wash the fish properly and cut into small pieces. Take out the long fish bones from it.
  2. Take the fish pieces in a bowl and add ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder,red chili powder, tomato sauce, soy sauce, garam masala and salt and then mix it well and keep for marinate in refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  3. To the marinated chicken add cornclour and gram flour (Besan) and a beaten egg and mix it well to get a smooth batter  with dipped fish pieces.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and drop fish pieces dipped in batter one after another and deep fry those pieces first in low flame for  about 5 minutes and then in medium flame for a couple of minutes until the fish inside cooked well and it becomes crispy brown from outside.
  5. Take out the fried pakora in a serving dish and serve hot with mint chutney or tomato ketchup.
