  • 8 sole (or another white fleshed fish) fillets, about 3 ounces each
  • 4 tablespoons vinegar
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying

  • Batter:
  • 1-1/4 cups chickpea flour (besan)

  • 1 teaspoon white cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1-4 green hot peppers, chopped (to taste)
  • 3 eggs

How to cook Indian Spicy Deep Fried Fish:
  • Wash the sole fillets and marinate in the vinegar, lemon juice, and salt for 30 minutes.
  • Drain the fish, reserving the marinade. Make the batter by simply mixing all the batter ingredients together with the reserved marinade. By using no water, it will be crisper.
