Sea Bass Bhaja

Super lazy Saturday – I spent hours in the aisles of 99 Ranch looking for perfect sauces and oil for my fettish, to cook Vietnamese Pho. Well what can I say, I am ambitious. But when it came to put my ambitions into action, the lethargy of chopping the plethora of veggies etc came over me, and I settled for sea bass bhaja.. Momma taught me bhaja when she was here. I guess the key to bhajas is super hot oil, so you put the fish in and take it out, and it cooks in that minute or so of hot oil dip.

I did the following.. I made some modifications from the original bhaja recipe.. so try this out.. it was pretty yummm as Agam can attest.

Cubed Pieces of Sea Bass
8-10 Pieces of Shrimp
1 tbsp – Garlic paste
1 tbsp – Ginger paste
1 tsp Cumin powder
2 tbsp curd
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp mustard oil
2 tbsp Maida
1 tsp red chilli powder
salt to taste

Marinate the fish in this marinade for 20-30 minutes.
Take 5 tbsp oil (yup no more)
Fry 3-4 pieces of fish/shrimps at a time
Serve hot.. you really don’t need anything along with this yummy bhaja
