Fish Popcorn

I have some leftover basa fillets in my refrigerator and the quantity is so small that you cannot make a full dish out of it. So made these quick pop corns. Very tasty snack for a lazy Sunday evening !!!


  • Basa Fillet – 250 gms
  • Salt
  • Black pepper Powder
  • Garlic Paste – 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger Paste – 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon Juice – 1 tbsp
  • Mixed herbs – 1/2 tsp
  • Egg – 1
  • Flour – 1/2 cup
  • Corn Flex – Ground, as required

 Marinate the fish cubes with salt, black pepper powder, Mixed herbs powder, ginger garlic paste and lemon juice.

Now have the flour mixed with salt and pepper, whisked egg with a tbsp of water and ground corn flex ready in 3 different plates. 

Take one fish cube at a time, first roll the fish cubes in flour then coat it with egg and next roll them in ground cornflex and then put them on a tray. Next put the tray in fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan. Add the fish cubes in it and fry for 5-6 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crisp.

Fry all the fish pieces in batches and serve with your choice of sauce.
