- About the fillet of Bhetki!
- Batter fry calls for a specific cut of the fish which I already have mentioned.
- Ask your fish vendor for batter fry (or butter fry cut) or told him/her the specification.
- Take Onion paste, ginger paste, garlic paste, green chili paste, lemon juice, black pepper powder, salt, and also garlic powder in a bowl and mix with a spoon.
- Adjust chili paste, pepper powder, and salt-based on your preference.
- Now marinate the fish fillets with this paste.
- Take the marinated fish along with the marination left in a flat tray/ rectangular tray and cover with cling film.
- Keep it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Making the Batter with butter!
- Keep ice-chilled water handy.
- Take plain flour and cornflour in a bowl.
- Add Garlic Powder, Black Pepper Powder, Salt, Baking Powder, and also Fruit Salt to it and mix with a whisk.
- Now add one egg to the mixture.
- Now add chilled water.
- Start with 1 cup of water and make the batter.
- As needed increase the water.
- The batter should be semi-thick.
- Keep this batter at room temperature for 15 minutes.
- Melt the butter and add it to the batter and mix.
- Keep it for 15 more minutes before making the fries.
- Mix with the whisk once again before using the batter.
The last step of making batter fry!
- Heat the oil in a deep bottom pan till the oil is properly heated.
- Keep the flame medium.
- Now take the marinated fish out of the refrigerator.
- Coat a fish with the batter prepared and drop it in the oil with care.
- Depending on the diameter of the pan you can fry 2-3 fries in one go.
- After 2 minutes of frying turn the fishes to the other side and fry for 2 more minutes.
- Keep the flame low.
- Fry for one more minute depending on the color of the fry.
- The fry should be golden in color and it must look crunchy.
- Strain from the oil and place over tissue paper or kitchen towel to drain excess oil.
- I use a bamboo b basket to keep the fish batter fry to drain extra oil if any.
- Following the same process fry the remaining fish butter fry.
