Thanks :)

eddy requested for a easy fish recipe for kids:)

Recipe no:30

Fish balls

As we don’t eat non-veg items during Durgapuja days, so I’m posting the recipe only. But it is so easy to cook that you can do it without seeing the pictures.:)
Take 5to6 pieces of Rahu fish. Steam these with salt for 4to5 minutes. Then de-bone the fish pieces. Mix these fishes with small pieces of Onion, Green chilli and Coriander leaves. Add 2or3 pieces of bread to it. Add salt as required. Add 1 teaspoon Garammasala powder and ½ teaspoon of Black Pepper powder. But, as we are preparing Fish-ball for kids a lesser amount of green chilli and pepper can be used.;) Mix thoroughly all these to make dough. Divide the dough into small and equal pieces. Shape these into small balls.

Take 2eggs; beat them with salt and a little pepper powder. Heat white oil in a pan. Dip the balls into the Egg mixture and fry the balls one or two at a time in medium heat till golden brown. Fry all.

Serve these with tomato sauce or coriander chutney. Kids and everybody will love it.:grin:
Have fun!!!

Thanks Purbhasha. We will wait for the pics, no hurry :)

Although I eat, but am not allowed to cook non-veg at home during navaratras so will have to wait till the next weekend.

Couple of questions on the recipe :

1- How to steam the fish ?
2- Can I not buy deboned raw fish ?

As a fish, is it rich in Vit D ? Thats the main reason I want to feed fish to my daughter :)

Anup Ji, wait for the Durga Puja to be over when Purbasha starts cooking non-veg. Or maybe, some enterprising cook might try this recipe and post images of his own version!


Durga pujo is over now and Deepavali is just a few weeks away. Purbasha, we all need "with pictures" non-veg items recipes :) I am very tempted to post pictures of all that I made during Durga Pujo with your online "Tech Support", but believe me none of the pictures will match your quality of preparation / presentation, so resisting the temptation :)

sorry I couldn't provide the pictures:(

You can steam the fish pieces using cooker and the separator or you can simply boil the fish piece in a pan for 5 minutes.
You can buy deboned fish, but you have to steam or boil the fish pieces before you mix all the ingredients:)
Fish contains Vit D but I think Sun rays/ Sunlight is the best source of Vit D.

Sir, I too wait for some enterprising cook to post in my journal, like ashi1pmc(page27,posted on23-10-12) and antarctica (page33, posted on 19-12-12):)

you are welcome to post pictures of all that you made during Durgapuja in my journal:)

Soon I'll post a non-veg recipe which I prepared in Diwali.
I'll love to share with all my BCMtian friends:)
