Indian food - an insight by Keith Rawling

When traveling we often eat at roadside Dhabas - small outdoor resturants. Most dishes are unlike the Indian food we get in England, for instance this is an authentic roadside Indian dish - Fish Fry
First catch your fish. In this case - Giant River Catfish.
Chop it up into medium size pieces.
Sprinkle with salt, garlic, turmeric and chilli powder and add water. After 5 minutes wash thoroughly with clean water
In the meantime, make sure your kitchen is clean and tidy
Prepare the other ingredients. Garlic, Coriander and Lemons.
Place fish in a clean dry dish.
Again add Turmeric, Chilli powder, Garlic, Salt and a little Lemon Juice, and leave for ten minutes
Fill the pan with Mustard oil and bring up to temperature.
Carefully add the fish.
Make sure it's cooked both sides (3-4 minutes)
Take out of the pan when cooked and place on paper to drain.
Add lemon Juice, Coriander and a little salt and serve.
The final dish - with a pint of Kingfisher - delicious!
