Amritsari Fish Fry

Amritsari Fish Fry

Amritsari fish is a spicy and tangy deep-fried snack native to the Punjab region. Every culture in the world has their version of fried fish, don’t they?
I have modified the original recipe slightly by pan frying the thin strips of fish steaks rather than deep frying them. Spicy and tangy, they are absolutely delicious, nevertheless.


Fish fillets – 2 lb, cut into thick strips (I used salmon, you can use any meaty fish)
Lemon – 1
Salt – to taste
Chickpea flour (besan) – 3 tbsp
Red chili powder – 2 tsp
Cumin powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
Amchur powder – 2 tsp
Cornstarch – 1 tbsp, heaped
Yogurt – ΒΌ cup
Oil – 3 tbsp
Chat masala – to garnish
Cilantro leaves – to garnish
Onion slices – to garnish
