Hello and welcome everyone to my cooking corner again. We want to eat different things in different seasons. Sometimes we crave for sweet dishes and sometimes for tangy ones. Today I had some fish in my fridge. And I thought of making a fusion recipe out of these given ingredients. So I made this recipe called Fish Sambhar. It tasted great with the goodness of fried fish and a tangy sambhar. It was liked by all. Hope you all will like it too. So here is the recipe—
- Boneless Fish(any type)-250 gms
- Toor Dal-250 gms
- Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
- Red Chilly Powder-1 tsp
- Coriander Powder-1 tsp
- Sambhar Powder-2 tsp
- Garam Masala-1 tsp
- Tamarind Paste-2 tsp
- Salt-According to taste
- Lemon Juice-1 tsp
- Freshly chopped coriander-For garnish
For the tempering:-
- Curry Leaves- A few
- Asafoetida-A pinch
- Black Mustard-1 tsp
- Vegetable Oil-2 tbsp
Wash and marinate the fish with some salt and turmeric powder and leave it for twenty minutes. Chop the onion, tomatoes, and coriander finely. Pressure cook the dal with salt and turmeric powder.
Take a pan and shallow fry the fish. Now take a kadhai and add oil with the tempering ingredients. Add chopped onion and fry for three minutes. Add the tomatoes and fry it too for four minutes. Now add red chilly powder and coriander powder and fry it for two minutes. Now add dal and sambhar powder, tamarind paste and let it boil for three-four minutes. Lastly, add garam masala and water for the gravy and let it simmer for ten minutes.
Now add in the fish pieces. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander and lemon juice.
Our Fish Sambhar is done. Serve it with steamed rice.
