Fish chukka recipe, Claypot fish sukka

Fish chukka/ Fish sukka/ Air fryer fish chukka is a flavorful and scrumptious dry dish prepared by tossing fried fish in spicy onion tomato masala. Traditionally chukka / sukka is prepared with mutton since I din’t eat mutton I had already posted chukka recipe like this CHICKEN CHUKKA.

I was really bored to make the same old recipes like:

So tried making this fish sukka and it truly turned out yummmmmm. The real reason for its taste is that I made the chukka in claypot – a series that I started recently and I am surely in love with claypots. Also I have used air fryer for frying the fish to keep it healthy but if you don’t like air fried ones you could fry the fish pieces before adding it to the masala. Also I have used tilapia fish fillets to prepare this recipe, so make sure to get fish fillets for this recipe as it works best. Finally the color is naturally achieved by cooking in claypot which truly a gift and you get try getting the same claypot in this shop ZISHTA. So let’s get the making of Fish chukka/ fish sukka.
