Fish Kebab | Meen Varuval

When it comes to sea food, I am always hooked on to fish kebabs. This is the first recipe of sea food which I learnt from my Mom. I got trained by watching my mom preparing this recipe. 

This recipe requires marination. Also, my mom make batter from fine sooji (chiroti rava) that add lot of crunchiness to this kebabs. I have modified my mom's recipe with my sister's recipe where she prepares green masala for marination. I have used only green ingredients for marination like green chilies and coriander.


500gm Ocean Perch Fillet
4 Green chilies
4 Garlic Cloves
small bunch of Cilantro
1/2 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Pepper powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder

For the batter
2 tsp Chiroti rava (fine soji)
2 tsp Rice flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder


  • Make a coarse paste of green chilies, garlic, cilantro, cumin powder, pepper powder and turmeric powder

  • In a large mixing bowl, add ocean perch fillet and ground spice paste. Adjust salt as per taste. refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours

  • In a small mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients listed for the batter. Add little water.

  • Preheat oil for deep frying
  • Now, apply the batter over refrigerated fish and gently leave it in hot oil. Fry in medium heat until it turns brown
  • Serve hot with red onion and lemon wedges
