Hello and welcome to my cozy cooking corner again.Raita is a common side dish of India.A proper and satisfying meal doesnot exclude raita from it.We make various raitas all over India like cucumber raita,mixed fruit and vegetable raita,onion and tomato raita,palak and sweet corn raita and others. Today I had some fish in my refrigerator and I decided to do something new with it.So I made this fish raita.I have taken basa fish for it.This recipe is a very simple version of making raitas with a medley of our regular spices and ingredients.It’s healthy, tasty and very easy.Come, let’s start with it’s making—
- Boneless Fish-4 pieces
- Curd-300 gms
- Roasted and crushed peanuts-1 tbsp
- Red Chilly Powder-1/2 tsp
- Dry Mango Powder-1/2 tsp
- Black Pepper Powder-1/2 tsp
- Black Mustard Powder-1 tsp
- Dried Mint-A pinch
- Chat Masala-A pinch
- White and Black Salt-According to taste
Wash and cut the fish fillet in pieces.I have used basa variety here though you can try others too. Marinate it with salt, black pepper powder, red chilly powder, dry mango powder, and shallow fry it till golden and crisp. Boil and cut the potato into small pieces. Shallow fry it too by adding chat masala,red chilly powder. Roast the peanuts and crush them coarsely.
Now take the curd in a bowl and beat it with a beater. Add in some sugar if it is too sour. Add black salt, black pepper, dried mint, black mustard powder, chat masala and mix well.
Mix the peanuts, potatoes and fried fish in the curd.
Notepoint—You can add a tadka of black mustard,curry leaves,chopped ginger,chopped green chillies too to make the raita better still though it is optional and I have not done so.
Our Fish Raita is done. Serve it with biryanis or tandoori rotis and dal tadka.
