FISH PADDA / FISH PICKLE - ANGLO-INDIAN FISH PICKLE

    















                                   
Fish Padda is also known as Fish Pickle. Fish Padda is an old Anglo-Indian favourite that was prepared in most Anglo-Indian Homes in the olden days.
Ingredients

500 grams sardines or small mackerels or any other small fish cut into fairly big pieces
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped ginger
3 tablespoons chillie powder
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 tablespoon cumin powder
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon mustard powder
2 teacups vinegar
20 or 25 curry leaves
½ liter oil Sesame oil or mustard oil
Salt to taste

Marinate the fish with turmeric powder & salt for half an hour. Fry the fish lightly in either sesame oil or mustard oil, for 5-8 minutes. It should only be slightly crisp. Remove & keep aside.

In the same oil add the curry leaves, chopped ginger and garlic and fry for a few minutes. Mix in the garlic paste, chillie powder, cumin powder, mustard powder and salt and fry with a little vinegar till the oil seperates from the mixtures and gives out a nice aroma. Add the rest of the vinegar and the fried fish and mix well . Simmer for 2 more minutes then take down.

Cool and store in bottles. This pickle will last for about 6 months.

Note; Instead of fresh fish, Salt fish can be used instead.
