Fish & Chips

Fish & Chips by Chef Ankit Gaurav

Fish and chips is a hot dish consisting of fried fish served with chips. This is the origin of  England and very much around the world. Fish and chips is a common take-away food in the United Kingdom and numerous other countries, particularly in English-speaking and Commonwealth nations.

Traditionally, cod and  haddock, are used to make fish and chips.Of these, cod is by far the most popular. But the choice of fish totally depends upon your choice and the availability on your local market. I suggest using flat white fish fillet. For my fish and chips recipe I had used sole.
