Hariyali Fish Tikka | Green Fish Tikka



Serves 3 to 4
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 20 to 25 minutes 

















Ingredients:

  • 500 gms of boneless fish cubes
  • 1 cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 3/4 cup chopped mint leaves
  • 4 to 5 green chilies (according to your taste preference)
  • 1 small onion cut into 4 pieces.
  • 5 curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp ginger & garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
  • 2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 1 tsp amchoor powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala powder
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 piece of charcoal
  • 2 to 3 tbsp ghee for basting.
  • Salt 


Preparation:

  1. Clean and cut fish into cubes. Place it on a tissue to remove all excess water.
  2. Marinate fish in 1 tbsp ginger & garlic paste, 1/4 tsp turmeric, salt, 1 tsp black pepper powder and 2 tbsp lemon juice for approx 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Make a hariyali paste by grinding 1 cup coriander leaves, 3/4 cup mint leaves, curry leaves and green chilies using few drops of water. The paste should be very dry and not watery. You can add a small onion to make the grinding easier.
  4. Keep a charcoal piece on fire. (This step is optional, you can skip this step if you do not have charcoal)

Method:


1) In a large bowl add marinated fish pieces, hariyali paste, 1 tbsp yogurt, 2 tsp cumin powder, 1/4 tsp garam masala powder, 1 tsp amchoor powder, 1 tbsp kasoori methi and a bit of salt.  Mix well with the fish till well coated. Marinate fish for 30 minutes. 

2) Make a small dent in the center and keep a piece of foil paper. Place a hot burning coal on the foil and pour 1 tsp ghee over the coal. Place a tight lid to stop the smoke from escaping. 

3) Remove the coal piece after 15 minutes.

4) Preheat oven at 250 degrees C. Place the fish pieces on a baking tray and bake. After 15 minutes remove the baking tray, baste the fish by brushing ghee over each piece (can also pour ghee with a spoon). Put the baking tray back to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes or till fish is cooked.



5) If you do not have a proper oven, heat a non stick pan and add oil or ghee. Add marinated fish pieces in the pan, place the lid and cook on low flame till fish is cooked and all water has dried up.


6) Serve hot as a starter, or as a side dish.


To make Onion Relish:

Mix together finely sliced onion, finely sliced capsicum, finely julienned carrot, salt and lemon juice.

    1. Yes you can shallow fry the fish on a frying as u normally do. But if u want to deep fry then u have to dip each marinated fish in plain flour and then deep fry
