Apollo Fish

Living in Hyderabad I have discovered so many interesting dishes. After experimenting with loose prawns, I was told to try the Apollo fish. I have tasted a few versions but the best was at this small Telugu joint called Simhapuri deluxe. It was too good

These Hyderabadi special dishes are perfect bar nibbles. An amazing amalgamation between Chinese and Hyderabadi and trust me this starter is so so good. Here is my version adapted from vah chef
