Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Ingredients (for 4 people) :

    -4 small mackerel fillets, pin-boned and trimmed
    -5cm piece of cinnamon stick
    -1 teaspoon cloves
    -1 teaspoon cumin seeds
    -1 teaspoon fennel seeds
    -1 teaspoon salt
    -1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
    -1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    -juice of 1/2 lemon
    -1/2 teaspoon Kashmiri red chilli powder for garnishing (or substitute with smoked paprika)

    For the yoghurt raita
    -200g plain yoghurt
    -1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
    -1/2 teaspoon salt
    -1/2 teaspoon sugar
    -juice of 1/2 lemon

    For the apple and fennel salad:
    -1 green apple, cored and thinly sliced
    -1 bulb of fennel, finely shaved using a sharp mandolin or very thin knife, refreshed in iced water
    -a pinch of chaat masala
    -juice of 1/2 lemon
    -1 tablespoon chopped coriander stalk, washed
    -a pinch of salt
    -a pinch of sugar


Start by making the yoghurt raita. Whisk together the yoghurt with the rest of the raita ingredients, then pass through a sieve to lose any lumps. Cover and chill until required.

Wash and pat dry the mackerel fillets. Grind or pound together all the spices and salt to a coarse consistency in mortar and pestle, then sprinkle them over the mackerel on both sides.

Mix together the oil and lemon juice and drizzle over the fish. Place the mackerel under a preheated hot grill, skin side up, and grill for 6–8 minutes, until just cooked through and the flesh flakes.

For the salad, just before serving mix together all the ingredients.

Divide the yoghurt raita between 4 plates, then top each with a mackerel and the salad, sprinkle with the chilli powder and serve immediately.
