Last week, we bought shark fish from the supermarket. It was fresh and I prepared pickle with it. Here is the finger licking recipe for that.
Fish - 1/2 kg (cut into small cubes)
Marinate the fish using Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp, Salt- to taste, Chilly powder- 1 tbsp, Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp and Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp. Keep aside for 20 minutes. Fry the fish in any vegetable oil.
Ginger - 100 gms
Garilc - 100 gms
Green chilly - 4
Curry leaves - 2-3 springs (randomly chopped)
Take half of the ginger-garlic and finely chop. In gingely oil, fry it with green chilly and curry leaves. When it is golden brown, transfer it into a plate.
|Fried items for the pickle|
Take half of the ginger and garlic kept aside and grind it to a fine paste. In the remaining gingley oil, fry this paste till oil separates. Add chilly powder - 2-3 tbsp, fenugreek powder - 1/2 tsp. Fry for few seconds, add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of vinegar. Bring to boil. Add the fried items and enough salt into this mix. Simmer for few seconds and remove from the fire.
Note: According to your taste, you may change the quantity of chilly powder and vinegar. You may add 1/4-1/2 cup of boiled water to adjust the thickness of the gravy before removing the pickle from the fire. Store it in air tight container. The pickle tastes good after 2-3 days.
