Here is fun colourful dinner that can be made in less time with the whole family pitching in, talk about the day and enjoy dinner.
I served this basa batter coated fish with salad and boiled buttered vegetables.
2 cups salad leaves washed and cut into about 1"
2 tbsp onion optional
1/4 cup carrots
vidalia onion vinaigrette or your favourite
Toss everything, children would be able to help depending on their age.
Boiled and buttered vegetables
yellow butter beans
1 cup of water with 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp margarine
salt to preference
pepper to preference
Boil the beans and broccoli for about 2 minutes. Drain the vegetables then toss it in 1 tbsp margarine, salt and pepper.
for the fish
4 fillets (1 pkt) basa fish cut into 2
1/2 tbsp or less chillie powder
1/4 tbsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
Mix all the ingredients and apply to the fillets. Leave aside for about 10 minutes till the other preparations are ready.
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Whisk all the ingredients together, use more water if needed to make a thick batter.
Dip the fish fillets in the batter after about 10 minutes of marinating. Coat with the bread crumb mixture.
It would be easy if one person is dipping the fish into the batter and the other person is coating the fish into the mixture.
* Can double dip the fillets if you like after coating it once in the breadcrumb mixture.
Bread crumb mixture
1/2 cup bread crumbs more if needed
1/4 cup crushed corn flakes
oil about 1 tbsp per fish fillet
Mix the bread crumbs with corn flakes and coat the batter dipped fillet until all sides are well coated and leave aside.
Heat a non stick pan with 1 tbsp of oil in medium heat. Pan fry each fillet of fish for about 3 to 4 minutes per side in a total of 5 to 7 minutes per piece.
Fry the fish 2 or 3 at a time depending on the size of the pan as long as the fish can fit in the pan flat in one layer.
To see if the fish is cooked, pierce the middle of the fish with a fork and you will see the fish white and it will easily separate into parts. Serve warm.
After dinner you can enjoy a special treat from Kinder®, share the chocolates and enjoy some time to play with the children and their new toys.
