- Heat 1 TBsp oil in a non-stick wide frying pan or non-stick flat griddle to shallow fry the Fish patties (Fish Kababs). Make sure that your Fish patties should only partially dip in Oil and not fully dipped. To clarify again, we have to shallow fry the Kababs, not to deep fry.
- When oil is hot at medium heat, gently add Fish Kababs one by one.
- Fry from one side for about 3 to 4 minutes from one side at medium flame. Do not overcook.
- Then very gently flip the Fish patties so they are fried from other side too. Take care while flipping the Fish patty so it should not break.
- Then fry just for 2 to 3 minutes from other side too at medium flame. Do not overcook.
- When your fish kababs are fried, take them out on tissue paper to absorb extra Oil.
- Repeat the same process with all the Fish patties left.
