Fish Karahi

Sometimes I think about how great I am. I mean there is no limit to my greatness. I'm like the highest ranking Jedi from Star Wars.

Sometimes people bother me but I never want to show that(which I just did) because I am too cool for this nonsense.

Sometimes I do not know what the hell I am writing but I keep on writing because its amusing, at least for me it is.


Winter is gone but not my love for sea food. Last week someone told me fish is too delicate for karahi but thanks to I found the perfect Fish Karahi recipe which I will share with you all today. is run by a wonderful lady who bakes the most delicious custom cakes in Lahore and I've tried and tested that myself. She also shares some amazing recipes and Fish Karahi is one of them. Absolutely one of the most amazing fish recipes ever.

You need:

Around 1 kilogram of boneless fish fillets 1 inch cut.

Around 6 roughly chopped tomatoes.

1 teaspoon ginger paste

2 teaspoon garlic paste

2 teaspoon whole coriander

2 teaspoon whole cumin

A small piece of ginger julian sliced

4 sliced & de-seeded green chilies

3 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander

5 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Salt per taste

2 teaspoon red chili powder

1/4 cup cornflour (maeda)

1/2 cup flour (atta)

First for the fish:-

Mix cornflour with flour. Season it with a pinch of salt, chili powder and add chilled water to form a medium thick batter.

Coat the fish properly and deep fry it till golden brown. Take out and set aside to prepare the karahi now.

Roast the whole cumin and coriander on low heat in a separate pan. Grind the roasted whole cumin and coriander in a raw powdered form.

Heat oil in a non stick pan or wok. Saute ginger & garlic paste on low heat.

Add whole cumin & coriander. Mix every thing on medium heat for 30 seconds and add chopped tomatoes. 

Cook the tomatoes on medium heat until they are chunky soft. Add 1/4 glass water. Add salt, chili powder & turmeric.

Then throw in the fresh cut ginger, green chilies and coriander. Masala is done when the oil comes out from the sides.

Add the fish now with 1/4 glass water and cook on low heat for 5-10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice.

What you are about to witness shall change your life completely. People, I bring you Fish Karahi.
