Sanoli's Kitchen: FISH CORN BALLS

Monday, July 22, 2013


Today, I am going to share a very delightful and nutritious kid's friendly snack, where fish and corn are an interesting way to eat. A great starter dish for picnic or party or potluck, sweet corn makes this dish good and healthy. Cheese adds rich, pleasing flavour. So, here is a mouth watery and finger licking recipe of 'Fish Corn Balls' for all fish lovers.


3 pcs / 200 gm Rohu Fish (cleaned)
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 Cup Sweet Corn (boiled for10 minutes and strained)
1/2 Cup Grated Cheese (I used 'Amul Cheese Cubes')
1 tbsp Corn Starch
2 tbsps All Purpose Flour (maida)
1 tsp Minced Ginger
1/4 tsp Black Pepper Powder
A Pinch of Soda Carb (sodium bi carbonate)
2 Finely Chopped Green Chillies (according to taste)
2 tbsps Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves / Cilantro
1/3 tsp Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder (optional)
1 tsp Bhaja Masala (dry roast 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp coriander seeds and 1 dry red chilli. Pound coarsely to get bhaja masala)
2 tsps Fresh Lemon Juice
Salt to taste
2 tbsps Oil + Oil for Deep Frying

Wash fish pieces nicely. Marinate it with turmeric powder and little salt. Heat 2 tbsps oil in a pan, fry the both sides of the pieces lightly. Keep aside.

Crush boiled corn. Remove skin and bones from fish. 

Take a large bowl, combine fish flesh, crushed corn, grated cheese, corn starch, APF/maida, minced ginger, black pepper powder, soda carb, green chillies, coriander leaves, Kashmiri red chilli powder, bhaja masala, lemon juice and salt. 

Mash everything and mix well.

Take a small portion from the fish-corn mixture and make a small lemon sized ball. Set it aside. Follow the same process to make rest of the balls.

In a wok, heat enough oil to deep frying. Add balls carefully in it. Don't ad more than 5-6 balls at a time. Fry till both sidesof the balls turn into golden brown. Remove from oil and place balls on a papper towel to absorb excess oil from it.

Garnish with green salad or chutney and serve immediately.
