Tandoori Fish Tikka

Tandoori fish tikka is a famous non-vegetarian snack and made in Pakistani style BBQ or grill. It is finger licking good, lemony and filled with flavor. It's an extremely popular dish from the northern part of Pakistan.The fish doesn't lose the tender taste from inside yet tastes crispy on the outside. The key is to marinate the fish well. Wondering how to make it?

Ingredients:

20gms fish fillets cut into 4cm chunks
1 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt
4-5 wooden skewers
Melted butter for basting (around 1-2tbsps)
Lemon juice or chaat masala for garnish
Mint chutney to serve

For the marinade;

3 garlic cloves roughly chopped
½" ginger roughly chopped
1 heaped tbsp thick greek yoghurt
½ tsp mild chilli powder (mild paprika would be great or kashmiri chilli powder)
1 tsp cumin powder
¼ tsp coarsely ground white pepper powder
1 heaped tsp corn floor
1 tbsp fresh coriander finely chopped
1 tsp vegetable oil
Salt to taste

Method:

Add the fish to a mixing bowl along with the lemon juice and salt. Mix well and set aside.
In a blender add the garlic and ginger along with a splash of water to make a thick smooth paste.
Soak the wooden skewers in warm water until you make the marinade.
In a separate bowl add the blended garlic and ginger paste along with the rest of the marinade ingredients. Mix well and add the fish cubes to the marinade. Leave to marinate for 15-20minutes.
Preheat the grill to a medium to high setting. Skewer the fish onto the wooden skewers. Pat the extra marinade over the pieces and place under the grill. Grill for 10-12 mins or until just done. Baste with butter half way through cooking.
Serve the Tandoori fish tikka over roti with a sprinkle of lemon juice or chaat masala & serve with mint chutney.

Easy Nargasi Kofta


Nargisi Kofta Curry, Nargisi Kofta recipe is an awesome dish which will be a perfect dish for the party table. Royal, Elegant, Delicious, this dish will be an amazing curry that goes well with chapati, naan, any kind ofrice, pulaos or parathas.

This nargisi kofta curry gravy is made from onion, tomato, yogurt. It needs very basic and usual spices. The gravy is smooth, creamy and rich. Addition of cashew nuts makes it rich. But the star of the dish are the eggs coated with the mutton mince. You can even add some cream to give that extra richness if you want. But it tastes fantastic even without the cream.

The crispy, outer mince layer, and soft and creamy eggs in the center, are simply yummy. It is always a celebration time when there is nargisi kofta curry, so do not wait for any occasion and whenever you feel like celebrating make these melt in the mouth koftas. The koftas themselves are so tasty even without the curry that they can easily be served as a snack too.

I prefer to refrigerate the mutton keema for sometime as it helps to bind over the egg properly. So it is always a good idea to refrigerate.
Ingredients

Ingredients:
6 eggs hard boiled and peeled
500 gms finely ground mutton mince / keema
1 medium sized onion very finely chopped
1 tbsp garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric powder

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the mutton mince, 1 onion, garlic paste, turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp red chili powder, 1/2 garam masala powder, 1 egg, and besan. Mix thoroughly or put it in the food processor till thoroughly mixed. Keep it refrigerated for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Now take a ball of this keema and wrap it over the hard boiled egg. Do this for all the eggs and deep fry in hot oil till dark brown in color. (Do a kofta test in hot oil first, drop a small ball of the keema dough, if it falls apart in the oil, coat the koftas in egg and fry.)
  3. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a kadai and add onion and fry till light golden. Then add, green chili, ginger and garlic paste. Fry for another minute till the raw smell from the ginger garlic paste vanishes.
  4. Now add red chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and salt. Put 1/4 cup of water so that the masala mixes well.
  5. Add tomato paste and let it simmer on medium heat for 8 - 10 mins or till oil separates.
  6. Add the fried koftas and the cashew nut paste with a cup of water and simmer for couple of minutes.
