Fish Pickle


My dear friend Bharathy had asked for the recipe for ‘Fish Pickle’.  But due to some inconvenience I couldn’t post it immediately.  Anyways here is the recipe for the lip smacking ‘Fish Pickle’.  It is a hit in my family and I think many of my readers will also like it very much!  You can serve it with rice, chapathi or pulao.

I am sending this recipe to Indrani for the event “Spotlight : Fish”



Fish – 1 kg cut into small pieces

Turmeric powder – 2 tsp

Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp

Salt – 1 1/2 tsp

Ginger – 3 tbsp chopped

Garlic – 3 tbsp chopped

Green chillies – 6 chopped

Curry leaves – 4 sprigs

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp

Uluva/ Fenugreek seeds – 1/4 tsp

Kashmiri chilly powder – 5 tbsp

Cumin/ Jeera powder – 1/4 tsp

Water – 1 cup

Vinegar – 1 cup

Salt – 3 1/2 tsp

Sunflower oil – 2 cups



Marinate the fish pieces with turmeric powder, pepper powder and salt.  Keep aside for 30 minutes.  Fry them in hot oil.  Strain and keep aside.  In the same oil, add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds.  When it sputters, add ginger, garlic, green chillies and curry leaves.  Fry till they are light brown in color.  Reduce the flame and add chilly powder and cumin powder.  Stir and add water, vinegar and salt.  Increase the flame and let it boil.  Add the fried fish pieces and mix well.  Switch off the flame and allow it cool completely.  Transfer the pickle into a glass jar and refrigerate.  Cheers!
