Monsoon Magic fritters-Fish Chop
It’s drizzling all throughout the day and what better than having all sorts of fritters and sipping on a cup of tea.I have come across with a very different king of fritter with Rui Mach/Rohu fish or Katla fish(whichever available).I must say, this recipe is unique and innovative. I would like everybody to try this at home and let me know.

1.Boil the fish pieces for about 10 minutes until it becomes soft, Remove all the spines and mash it coarsely.

3.Heat oil in a pan and add chopped onion and fry for couple of minutes. Add ginger garlic paste and again sauté for another minute.
4.Add turmeric powder,cumin powder, coriander powder and salt. Fry the spices for 2-3 minutes and then chana dal ,and chopped tomatoes. Saute for 2-3 minutes.Add the fish, garam masala powder and stir it properly for 4 to 5 minutes.

6.Stuffing is ready when it’s absolutely cooled.
7. Mix rice flour, all purpose flour, and baking powder. Add 2 tablespoon of oil and mix with it. Now add water gradually so as to make soft dough.
8.Make small balls from the dough and make tit flat with hand and put the stuffing mixture into it. Fold and seal the edges properly by applying pressure with your fingers only.
9.Heat oil in a pan/kadai; add one by one and deep fry till it becomes golden yellow and crisp outside.
