    First of all, you have to wash the fish with utmost hygiene. Then take a big bowl and add all the ingredients which are given below:

    • Fishes
    • Turmeric powder
    • Red Chilli Powder
    • Ginger Paste
    • Garlic Paste
    • Salt

    STEP 2:

    Now put some oil in the pan and heat it until it gets piping hot. Now, it’s time for you to add the marinated fish. And fry the fishes.


    The fish will be properly fried if both sides of the fish are brown. Now it is ready to be kept on the plate.

    STEP 3:

    Now, it’s the tadka time. For the preparation of the traditional Punjabi tadka, first of all, heat the oil in the huge cauldron. Once heated, then add the Indian spices and the herbs turn by turn:

    • Jeera
    • Mustard seeds
    • Bay leaves
    • Kasuri Methi

    Once all these ingredients are nicely cooked, then it’s time for you to add the following:

    • Sliced Onion ( Fry them until they get a nice golden brown colour.)
    • Tomatoes( Fry the tomatoes until they tend to leave the water and get blended with the onion)
    • Ginger Garlic Paste


    Do not put the prepared ginger garlic paste in the beginning of the tadka. You can only put it before the onions if these are chopped and not ground or blended.

    Afterwards, add the following in the tadka:

    • Turmeric powder
    • Red chili powder
    • Coriander Powder
    • Curry Powder
    • Garam Masala powder

    STEP 4:

    When the masala is thoroughly cooked, then add some water to it. After the water has boiled in it, then add the fish filets to it. Once added, then cover the lid and let it be cooked for at the latest 15 minutes.

    STEP 5:

    Exactly after fifteen to twenty minutes, you can switch off the flames if the Punjabi curry is ready to be served along with refreshing ingredients like the coriander or the cilantro.
