Total Time: 1hr 10 mins.

Servings: 15 People


  • salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • 400 grams Flour
  • One medium-sized grated carrot
  • One Onion bulb
  • One teaspoon of Garlic powder
  • One tablespoonful sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 100 grams margarine
  • One teaspoon of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • One large raw egg
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • One seasoning cube
  • ¼ teaspoon hot pepper
  • One Fresh whole mackerel fish


  1. Mix half the onion, half a teaspoon of garlic powder, half the thyme, half a seasoning cube, curry powder, and salt to taste, and rub it all over fresh mackerel fish.
  2. Start by adding some water and boiling it until everything is done.
  3. The fish must be removed from the stock, the bones removed, and the fish mashed with a fork.
  4. Stir fry minced onions and garlic powder in two tablespoons of vegetable oil until the onions are translucent.
  5. Stir-fry the grated carrot before adding the mashed fish, hot pepper, seasoning cube, and a pinch of salt.
  6. Just a quick stir will bring out all the flavours. Place in a bowl and put in the fridge to chill.
  7. Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl; then, cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  8. Mix the eggs in thoroughly, then add water little by little until you have a dough you can work with.
  9. A smooth but firm dough can be achieved by transferring the ingredients to a work surface, kneading for three minutes, and then letting the dough rest for five minutes while covered.
  10. Return the dough to your countertop and proceed to make a few cuts. Roll out the small ball of dough until it’s flat with a rolling pin, and then cut it into a rectangle.
  11. Now, spread the fish filling evenly over the dough and roll it up tightly. Keep rolling it until it’s the length you want.
  12. The remaining dough should be treated in the same manner and set aside.
  13. Finally, deep-fry the rolls in hot oil until they are golden and crispy.
  14. Serve and enjoy.
