Machhi Amritsari

  • Non Veg
  • 22 mins
  • Serves 2
  • Easy



Machchi Amritsari is a dish that is not like the typical Punjabi dish in the sense that it is savory. Most of the famous and acclaimed Punjabi dishes are sweet. However, this is the only dish that is bursting with flavors and is simultaneously a nutritious alternative to many of the fatty fish dishes from that cuisine. It is both easy to prepare and will leave you wanting more.

Health benefits:

  • Fish are low in calories and have long strands of polyunsaturated essential omega-3 fatty acids that are helpful to the brain.
  • The body cannot produce omega-3 naturally, so fish is an excellent way to procure this nutrient for the body.
  • Fish have also been known to significantly reduce the risk of heart diseases.
  • They also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease as well as Epilepsy.
  • They’re rich in Vitamin D.

How to Make Machhi Amritsari

  1. Make sure that you’ve cleaned and washed the fish before using it.
  2. Cut it thoroughly into fillets or fingers.
  3. In a separate pan, mix the salt, lime juice, ginger and garlic paste.
  4. Once the paste has gotten golden brown, add in the chili powder.
  5. Keep it simmering until the paste has thickened and has gotten a perfect consistency.
  6. In a different bowl, make a batter of gram flour, yoghurt, eggs, ajwain and salt.
  7. Keep mixing them and add water to get the required consistency.
  8. Once you’ve gotten the batter at the required and desired consistency, mix the fish in.
  9. Keep the fish marinated for about 10 minutes.
  10. Heat oil in a pan and keep it heated until the oil becomes really hot.
  11. Deep fry the fish on both sides until a light brown and crisp texture is achieved.
  12. Sprinkle with chat masala, lemon wedges and serve hot.


  • Fish do not have ears, they hear through enclosed organs that are situated either side of their heads, behind the eyes.
  • All fish sleep, however since they have no eye lids there’s no way to tell exactly when they’re asleep and when not. This is one of the reasons why so many tuna fish can be found in the stomach of slower and bigger fishes.
