"FISH FOLDER".. my signature dish for RPlus channel

Last month I had the opportunity to share one of my special signature recipes with eminent singer and host Parama Banerjee in her well known cookery show" R-O RANNAGHOR" in  a widely popular Bengali TV channel RPlus. I was invited by RPlus channel to share an exotic and innovative Fish Recipe. It   was a nice experience to cook and spend an hour with one of my favourite vocalists Parama. I got nice gifts from the sponsors and was delighted by the cordial behaviour of RPlus channel.

Ingredients for making "Fish-Folder"

  • For the Pan Cake Batter:
  • Flour 1 Cup
  • Egg 1 no.
  • Milk 1/2 Cup
  • Pinch of Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Refined oil
  • For the Pan Cake Filling
  • Fish (Rui/ Katla) 200 gms. marinated with a pinch of salt and turmeric powder.
  • Grated Carrot 4tbsp
  • 1 Potato (boiled& mashed)
  • Finely Chopped Onion 4tbsp
  • Finely Chopped Garlic 1tsp
  • Grated Ginger 1tsp
  • Lemon juice
  • Finely Chopped Coriander
  • Finely Chopped Green Chillies
  • Garam Masala Powder 1/2 tsp
  • Ghee 1tsp
  • Mustard oil 2 tsp
  • Sugar 1tsp
    Boil the marinated fish  with just the right quantity of water, till there is no more water left in the vessel. De-bone the fish using your hands.  Add 2-3 drops of lemon juice into the fish and keep aside. Fry the onions in mustard oil till golden brown in a wok. Add the garlic, the ginger, the green chillies, and then fry for 5 minutes. Now add the finely chopped coriander leaves and the grated carrot, and finally the boiled and mashed potato.. Finally Add the de-boned fish. Saute for 5 minutes. Add 1 tsp sugar, salt (to taste), ghee and  garam masala powder. Spread the mixture on the wok so that it gets completely dried.
    Now for the pancake, heat a nonstick frying pan and grease it with 1/2 tsp refined oil. Pour the pan cake batter with the help of a serving spoon and spread uniformly in a low flame. Turn upside down. Now place the fish filling inside the pan cake and roll it like a "Patisapta". Serve with "Cheese Yoghurt Sauce"

    Dear Indira
    Now I saw the video. It is so detailed, I can make it blind folded. You must have seen, most of the commercial food videos hide the critical steps, proportions, method or a photo, so that no one can reproduce....yours is so detailed...
    I shall use " Gada" unless I get fat free rui from Nangal dam or from MP.
    Have a nice day
