Fish Manchurian

Fish Manchurian

Today's dish is a simple version of the  Indo Chinese recipe-Fish Manchurian.Fish Manchurian is a popular dish in Indian restaurants and sea food lovers who wish  a change in flavor and taste should definitely give this a try . It is a simple recipe,marinated fish is dipped in batter and deep fried and finally mixed with sauces.I used Cubanelle peppers a variety of sweet pepper in this recipe and it had a unique flavor. This is a dry version so it can be served as an appetizer/starter or as a side dish with fried rice.

To marinate
Fish- 1 1/2 lb
(I used King fish)
Pepper powder- 1/4 tsp
Ginger- garlic paste- 2 tsp

Chilly paste- 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice- a few drops

For the batter
Corn starch- 2 tbs
Flour- 1/3 cup
Pepper powder- a  pinch
salt- a pinch

To Saute
Onion - 1medium chopped
Cubanelle peppers- 1/2 cup
(or green chilly slit lengthwise 4-5)
Garlic- 3-4 pods
Soya sauce- 2 tbs
Dark soya sauce- a few drops
Chilly garlic sauce- 1 tsp
Rice Vinegar- 1 tsp
Tomato sauce- 2 tbs
sugar- a pinch
Chicken or vegetable stock- 1/3 cup
corn starch- 1/2 tsp
Oil to fry

Cut boneless fish into medium sized cubes. Marinate with pepper powder,lemon juice,chilly paste and ginger-garlic paste and keep aside for 10 minutes,
Mix together, corn starch, flour,a pinch of pepper powder, salt and egg and 1/3 cup of water to make a batter. Make a batter which is not thin or too thick.
Dip the fish in the batter and deep fry the fish in medium hot oil till it is golden brown. Drain on paper towels and  keep aside.
Heat a pan and add 2 -3 tsp of oil. When it is hot add minced garlic and saute for a minute,followed by cubed onions and pepper/chilly. Saute for two minutes. Add fried fish and saute. Mix sauces,sugar and vinegar in the chicken/vegetable stock along with corn starch and pour over the fish and mix well and allow this to come together and coat the fish. If you you want more gravy add little more of chicken stock. Serve as a appetizer/starter or with fried rice.
