'Ca Chien Sot CA' - ' Fried Fish in Tomato Sauce'

'Ca Chien Sot Ca' let me say it again for you 'Ca Chien Sot Ca' I don't even know WTH is that but according to google this means 'Fried Fish in Tomato' which is also the name of my experiment today.

Time to teach ya'll how this Chinese beauty is made.

You need 1 kilogram boneless fish and cut it cube like

2 medium finely chopped onions

3 tomatoes finely chopped 

1/2 cup tomato sauce

2 teaspoon ginger garlic paste

1 teaspoon salt for gravy 1 teaspoon for marinade

1.5 teaspoon black pepper for gravy 1 teaspoon for marinade

2 tablespoon cornflour

2 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon chili sauce

2 teaspoon vinegar

1 egg

1 cup water

1 tablespoon chopped coriander


Add 1 egg, 2 tablespoon cornflour,  1 teaspoon salt & 1 teaspoon back pepper to the fish and marinate for 15-20 minutes. Mix it gently with hands and not any utensil. It is okay to get your hands dirty at times if you know what I mean.


Blend the tomatoes, tomato sauce, soy, chili sauce, ginger garlic paste, vinegar, salt& pepper into a paste and set aside. BLEND BLEND


Put 1 cup oil in a pan to deep fry fish until crispy. CRISP CRISP. Beautiful, ain't it? 


Keep fish aside. Now add 4 tablespoon oil in a pan and sauté onions until transparent.

Add paste & cook for 15 minutes. Add fish and cook for another 20 minutes on medium heat. If you think the gravy is burning then you can add 1/2 a cup water to let it cook for the mentioned time.


After 20 minutes it will be ready. If you want to spice it up you can add diced green chilies.
