Masala Machchi

Masala Machchi

I really like Indian food and I am always looking for new Indian recipe ideas to try out. Here is my new recipe for Masala Machchi that I made yesterday. Masala Machchi is a spicy Indian fish recipe made with white fish fillet, onion, ginger, lemon juice, garlic and more...

Yield: Serves 2

  • 400 g fillet of any white fish, I used cod fillet
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1-inch fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 5-6 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • canola oil
  • salt to taste

Wash and pat dry the fish. Cut into 2-inch x 1 1/2-inch pieces.

Masala Machchi

Blend the onion, garlic, ginger, coriander, lemon juice and salt until the mixture is a smooth paste.

Masala Machchi

Coat the fish pieces with a light coating of the paste. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Masala Machchi

Mix the flour, salt and chili powder together. Spread in a plate. Dip the fish pieces in the beaten egg.

Then lightly toss them in the flour mixture.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat until hot. Gently lay the fillets into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Place them on a paper towel to absorb extra oil. Serve the Masala Machchi with rice or salad.

@Wendy, I always fry them and never tried baking them. I'm not sure but I think you can preheat the oven on 370 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for about 25-30 minutes.

Could this be baked in the oven? If so, what would you start out the oven at and about what amount of time? I realize it would be your best guess but I prefer bake to frying. Thank you
