How to Make Fish with Cheese Sauce

  • Mix the flour, salt and oil for the batter. Now add the water gradually, to avoid lumps being formed. Mix well and keep aside.
  • Make the cheese sauce with the sauce ingredients.
  • Wash the fish and wipe dry. Dust with plain flour, patting off the excess flour.
  • Heat the oil for frying and while it is being heated, beat the egg white stiff and fold into the batter.
  • When the oil is ready, dip the fish into the batter, shake off the excess batter and fry to a very light golden colour on both sides.
  • Place it on an absorbent paper to drain off the excess fat.
  • Immediately before serving, fry the fish once again in hot oil, drain and arrange in a serving dish.
  • Pour some of the hot cheese sauce over it and garnish it with chopped celery.
