    Amritsari Fish, a delicacy originated from Amritsar, Punjab is also a popular street food sold in the streets corner of Amritsar. This is an easy fried fish dish cooked in minutes with the readily available ingredients from your kitchen. Serve this as an appetizer for your cocktail party or side dish for your main course. I prepared this dish last weekend for a Potluck party and it was an instant HIT!!!!

    • 1 lb. of boneless Salmon fillet, cut into cubes

    • 1 egg

    1. Marinade the fish pieces with malt vinegar , keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
    2. Add all the ingredients for batter in a big bowl, mix well. Slide in the fish pieces in the batter, stir to coat the fish pieces well in the batter, let stand for another 5 to 7 minutes.
    3. In the mean time, heat oil for deep frying; slide in the fish pieces in batches, not too much at a time; fry the fish pieces till it turns a bright golden brown color on both the sides.
