Tikka-style Fish

The pre orders for the new iPhone 5 sold out in under an hour.  Everywhere you see, people own a smart phone.  If you Google (being used as a verb here) what business to start, the best business to start is becoming an app developer or to open a smart phone repair shop.  There are apps today to manage your to-do lists, your grocery and menu, monitor your sleep patterns, book tickets and hotels – to do almost anything.  The “Cloud” is the next big thing. 

I have an ipod to listen to music and audio books.  The last time my son borrowed it, it now can scan products in the supermarket, can make audio and video calls to every place in the world, is able to create troll pictures, blinks every time there is a new news item on CNN and even has an app to monitor bowel movements!  Not to mention all the games I can play when I get time.  And it is all intertwined – I can inform my friends on Facebook what music I am hearing, what news article I read and which places I have been to.  I have to keep up-to-date with all the privacy settings to make sure nothing inappropriate is being shared with strangers.  And then I wonder why my life is stressful!

Preparation Time: 20 minutes + marinating 1 hour
Serves: 4


1 kilo firm boneless fish, cut into medium sized pieces
4 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste
6 tablespoons yoghurt
2 tablespoons Olive oil
2 teaspoons turmeric powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
3 teaspoons cumin powder
Salt to taste


  1. Mix the ginger-garlic paste along with the turmeric, chili and cumin powders, salt and yoghurt and oil.  Use this mixture to marinate the fish pieces, then chill for at least 1 hour until ready to cook.  
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C if you are going to use an oven.  
  3. Put the pieces of the fish on a baking dish and cook for 10 to 12 minutes on each side.  Serve hot with salad.
