Christmas Colors Chilli Fish

Sweet and chilli flavored food is always welcomed on fests and occasions. For many of us, appetizers are the favorite part of the Christmas feast. Isn’t it? And on top of that tangy-spicy appetizer is something you can’t resist. So, I decided to prepare tangy fish. Yummzz! Hope you liked my recipe, grilled fish (cod), it is Cristiano Ronaldo’s all time fav. I am very fond of varieties of fish especially pomfret as it is rich in vitamin A, vitamin B3 and vitamin E. It also helps in fighting wrinkles and skin redness. It adds moisture to your skin.

Soy sauce is an awesome ingredient to flavor recipes. It’s the most common in Asian cuisine. Most dishes don’t specify the type of soy sauce that we use, but they vary wildly as per flavor, texture and appearance. I have used a strong one here to imbibe the Asian flavors. I have used homemade green chilli sauce here to add-on extra spice to the recipe. Tomato Sauce that is a bit sweet is recommended.

Ingredients:-

1 cubed Onion,

1 cubed Capsicum,

1 teaspoon Honey,

3 tablespoons Flour,

Olive Oil for deep frying,

1 teaspoon Tomato Sauce,

1 tablespoon Soya Sauce,

31/2 tablespoons Cornflour,

1 teaspoon Green Chilli Sauce,

1 bunch chopped Spring Onions,

250 grams cubed deboned Fish,

2 teaspoons Ginger-garlic paste,

1 teaspoon Black Pepper Powder.

Preparation Method:-

1. Make a thick batter of 3 tablespoons cornflour, flour ,1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste, salt, pepper powder and water. Dip the fish pieces in this and shallow fry in oil until golden brown.

2. Drain and set aside. In the same oil, add the onions and capsicum. When the onions start to turn pink, add the ginger-garlic paste. Stir until fragrant.

3. Turn the heat to high. Add the soya, chilli and tomato sauce. Mix well and reduce heat. Add the fried fish pieces. Again mix well and cook on low heat.

4. Mix well the 1 teaspoon cornflour in 4 tablespoons water. Add to the fish mixture and cook until the sauce thickens and coats the fish completely. Add chopped spring onions and honey. Serve hot with your fav drink.

The best part here is that you can enjoy the meat of your choice. You can also use any kind of low fat cheese instead of cheddar cheese. The hotness quotient (usage of sauce) of this meat recipe can be made flexible. I have only combined the best of rich Christmas flavors to make a pie that both children and adults will adore.

Ingredients

For Filling:-

1/2 cup Chilli sauce,

2 tablespoons Onion Soup Mix,

1 pound ground Turkey or Beef.

For Dough:-

3/4 cup Milk,

1 teaspoon Salt,

1 cup Shortening,

1 tablespoon Vinegar,

3 cups All-purpose Flour,

3/4 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese,

1 tablespoon Sesame seeds (Optional).

Preparation Method:-

1. Cook beef over medium heat until done. Stir in chili sauce and soup mix. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sesame seeds and salt. Add shortening and cheese until crumbly. Mix milk and vinegar. Slowly add it to the flour mixture. Knead the dough.

3. Divide the dough in 2 halves. Make 2 rolls out of the dough, which should be thick enough to hold the filling. Cut circles with the help of a mini meat pie cutter.

4. Top each with a tablespoonful of meat mixture. Cover with remaining circle (dough). Moisten edges with water. Press with a fork to seal. Cut a slit on top of each as shown.
