Fiery Fish Pakoda (Deep Fry) - Cooking Instructions
Gently mix the contents of the package to ensure all pieces of meat are completely coated with batter.
On the hob method:
Place a deep-frying pan on medium heat. Add enough oil to completely submerge the pieces. Heat oil to 180 degree celsius. It shouldn't be so hot that the oil starts to smoke, nor too cool or the meat will just soak up all the oil. To test, slide a piece of meat in the oil and if it sizzles then you should be on the right track.
Once the oil is hot enough, slide in the pieces one by one gently into the oil. Make sure you don’t drop the pieces in as it may make the oil splatter onto your hand. Gently stir the pieces in the oil and turn them over occasionally till you get a golden brown colour on all sides.
Should take you approximately 3-4 minutes. If you feel like it isn't cooked through, fry for another minute. Remove carefully onto a paper towel with a slotted spoon.
Rest the pakodas for about 5 minutes before serving.
