Fish Tikka

Fish Tikka

Fish Tikka is a highly relished non-vegetarian appetiser with origin to Indian cooking. With traditional Indian preparation, the fish retains its tender taste and turns crispy from outside – giving the most sumptuous experience to the taste buds. The key to the recipe is a good marination in authentic Indian spices.
