Crumb fried fish.


Last weekend was rather hectic for me as I went to Kottayam to attend a betrothal and I met one of my amma's aunt (whom I am seeing after a decade as she is in US) and she told me that she follows my blog and that she even prints out my recipes ...wow that was some encouragement and I was in high spirits the whole day. Later that day I happened to visit my cousin Ponnu who married recently and was excited to treat me with her new cooking skills. So I surrendered to her skills and she lavished me with this crumb fried fish...so soft and juicy. Anything crumb fried needs bread crumbs; which won't be available in my kitchen and I am lazy to powder the rusk or toast the bread and powder them etc etc etc. So Ponnu traded a little secret with me that evening...when you are out of bread crumbs stock...just shred some plain bread pieces with yours hands into the small mixer grinder and (chutney bowel) and give it a grind ......Voila!!! bread crumbs are ready.

How Ponnu made them:
Butter fish (or any boneless fish): 6 pieces.
To marinate:
Green chilly sauce: 1/2 tsp.
Pepper powder: 3/4 tsp.
Ginger garlic paste: 1 tsp.
Lime juice or soya sauce: 1/2 tsp.
Salt.
Marinate fish with the above ingredients and keep in fridge (the longer the better).
Tip: If you ran out of green chilly sauce just put in 2 green chilies while grinding the ginger garlic paste.
How Ponnu makes bread crumbs:
Break 4 to 5 bread pieces with your hands and put them into the chutney bowel.

After it is grounded.

Breadcrumbs ready to be dipped in.
How to fry them:
Beat half an egg and pour it over the marinated fish and take each fish and dip into the bread crumbs and fry them. Serve hot with a sauce of your choice.
Tip: You can also cut the fish into small stripes and call them finger fish.Check out how I made finger fish.

  2. Hi,another way of making breadcrumbs is by toasting bread in the toaster. Then cut it into smaller pieces & then grind it in the mixie. The toasting gives it a firmer & dryer texture

The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry" Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes. Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style. Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs. The
