Fish With Peppers And Aamchur

Fish With Peppers

Mangoes which are still unripe and green are peeled, sliced and then dried in the sun. Then grind into a powder, known as Aamchur. The powder is rich in Vitamin C and cures digestion. This spice imparts a sour fruity note and works well in dry fish dishes such as this light stir-fry.

Fish With Peppers Ingredients

  • 2tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1tsp aamchur. (Use MDH’s Aamchur)
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder

  • 2tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 chopped red, green and yellow pepper
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • A few washed and chopped coriander leaves

Fish With Peppers Preparation

  • In a small bowl, mix the ground coriander, cumin, aamchur, chilli powder and ginger.
  • Coat the fish with spice mixture and set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add one tablespoon of the oil. Add the onion and fry for five minutes until translucent. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Put the cornflour in a shadow dish and add the fish, turning it to coat it in the cornflour.
  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan on low heat. Add the fish and cook for 5-7 minutes until lightly golden. Remove the fish and set aside.
