Break ke Baad

Fifty recipes in the Food Stall in twenty nine days called for a celebration. So off we went to Snowdonia in Wales. Join me in my yatra by the end of this week for a picturesque tour of Llandudno. The beauty of the place takes your breath away & one comes back more than rejuvenated after the break.

Meanwhile, mom's kitchen ran with clockwise precision. It saw delicacies being churned out with the speed of the inferno. Chilli Fish was made in Bhaitu & Mou's honour. The scientists are back from Vienna & are settling in in their Bangalore residence. Foodies of the highest order, they relish their grub with the love of the afficionado. It is always a pleasure hosting people who enjoy your cooking.

An easy to make fish dish, folks. If you enjoy Chilli Chicken, very possibly, you will like Chilli Fish too. 

The Marinade:

2. 1 large onion- cubed 
3. 1 large capsicum- cubed
4. Grated/chopped ginger- 1/2 tsp

7. Sugar- 1/2 tsp
8. Tomato Sauce - 1 tbsp
9. Chilli sauce - 3/4 tbsp
10. Soya Sauce- 1/2tbsp
11. Water - 1 1/2 cup(if gravy preferred)
12. Ajinomoto- 1/2 tsp
13. Salt- to taste

1. Marinade the fish & keep aside for 10 mins.

2. Cut the vegetables & keep them ready.

3. Deep fry the marinaded fish in hot oil & keep aside.

     Do not use the leftover marinade for cooking.

4. Saute onion, capsicum, ginger & garlic on medium flame for 7-8 mins till onion is translucent & capsicum, slightly soft.
Retain the colour & crunch of capsicum. Do not brown.

5. Add 1 1/2 cup water in the onion mix & bring to boil. Add the fried fish pieces, salt, sugar & sauces & let simmer on high flame for 5-6 minutes.  

Add ajinomoto & remove from flame when the gravy is reduced
as per your preference.                    

Chilli Fish goes best with plain/Chinese fried rice or noodles.
