What ingredients do I need for Amritsari Fish Tikka – Air Fryer Fish Tikka?

1 pound Tilapia filet, plain Greek yogurt, chickpea flour, ginger garlic paste, club soda, lime juice, oil of choice, Carom seeds (Ajwain), red chili powder (cayenne pepper), salt, ground turmeric, and chaat masala.

How do I make Amritsari Fish Tikka – Air Fryer Fish Tikka?

Firstly, dice the fish to 4-inch pieces. They need to be about 4″ x 3″ in length and width. We want nice medium sized pieces.

Secondly, in a mixing bowl add in the Greek yogurt, chickpea flour, ginger garlic paste, club soda, lime juice, oil of choice, Carom seeds (Ajwain), red chili powder (cayenne pepper), salt, and ground turmeric. Mix well.

Further add in the fish and coat it well with the marinade.

Let the fish sit in the marinade for 30 minutes covered with a lid. If you have time leave it overnight in the refrigerator.

Further, when you are ready to cook, grease your  Air Fryer  basket with oil. I grease mine by rubbing, brushing, or spraying, oil generously on the bottom grate. Also, make sure to grease with a lot of oil or else the fish will get stuck and break. Furthermore, follow your air fryer directions for preheating to 350°F for 5 minutes. Additionally, when it’s preheated, working in batches, place the fish in a single layer. Set the time and temperature (390°F for 10 minutes). Next, when done, drizzle some oil on the top of the fish and then flip the pieces of fish in the basket and repeat for another 7 minutes. And, repeat the process until you run out of fish.

Finally garnish with chaat masala and serve hot with Coconut Cilantro Chutney
