Fish and chips is one of the British delicacies i love to eat.For the battered cod fish and chips, mushy peas and mayo mint dip is a good accompaniment. It's very filling and packed with nutrients , the only down side is frying the fish in the oil if you are calorie concious.
For the hand-cut Chips:
Slice the peeled potatoes in the desired shapes and sizes. Oven roast by sprinkling a bit of oil until it turns out to the chips consistency. Add salt to taste.
For the Mint and mayo dip:
Grind some fresh mint leaves and mix the paste with any ready made mayonaise
For the mushy peas:
A cup of dried peas should be soaked overnight. I've pressure-cooked the peas and it can also be cooked in a saucepan but is time-consuming.The cooked peas should be blended by adding 1/2 sppon of sugar and 1/2 spoon of salt and 1/2 spoon of pepper powder.
For the battered Fish:
Skinless boneless long cod fillet -1
self-raising flour - 1 cup
rice flour - 1tsp
oil - 3 tbsps
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Make the batter by adding the self-raising flour , rice flour , salt and some water. Rice flour is optional , do not add more and limit it to 1 or 2 tsps. I add it for the crispiness.
Cooking Method :
Heat the oil is a large flat pan. Dip the fish so that the batter is applied on both sides of the fish thoroughly.
Deep fry until the fish is cooked .
I bet anyone who tries this recipe is going to fall in love with the taste!!!!!!!!!!!
