Chilli Fish

This is an easy and fast recipe to cook. If you are looking for a fish dish with lots of flavour then this could be a good choice. I have used Monk fish but you can use any fish you like.


200 gm fish (cut into small cubes)
2 Onions (cut in cubes)
2 Green chillies (chopped)
1 Capsicum (cut in cubes)
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
3 tbsp tomato ketchup
Salt to taste
1 tsp sugar
Oil for frying

For marination of the fish:

1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp red chilly powder
2 tsp cornflour, diluted in little water (cold)
1 tsp lemon juice


Marinate the fish in the marination mixture for 30 minutes. Heat the oil in a deep bottom pan. Fry the fish pieces for 2 minutes (do not overcook it will make the fish chewy). Do not through the marinated mixture. Now add the chopped ginger and garlic in to the remaining oil. Fry for few seconds then add the onions and the chillies. Now cover and cook till onions are bit soft but not fully done. Now add the capsicum and the marination juice left. Cover and cook for few minutes. Add the tomato ketchup, sugar and salt, mix well, cover and continue cooking in a medium flame for another 2 minutes. Uncover the pan and check for seasoning. If require add sugar and salt to your taste. Serve hot with steamed rice. Enjoy!
