Fish and Chips are a kind of food that originally came from the United Kingdom. It is a popular kind of fast food in some parts of the world. As the name says, it made of chips and a deep-fried fish fillet. Shops and restaurants that have fish and chips are easy to find in England and Wales. They are common in British cities, the first Fish and Chips were found in the East end of London in the late 19th Century. So they are not as traditional as we think.

A Brief History:
Fish and chips gained popularity when the meal helped feed the masses during the First World War. And since fish and potatoes were two of only a few foods not rationed in WWII,

The traditional dish maintained its status.
Today, there are about 11,000 fish and chips shops throughout the UK and Ireland, so finding a chippie (a fish and chip shop) is usually easy. Fish and chip shops are now also around the world, including a few shops in New York City, and are especially popular in coastal regions of Spain
Everyone has their own preferences and tastes vary from one part of the country to another.their cooking method is quite different from us so here I did some variation and try to give it to Pakistani taste,
that is even acceptable for all they don’t use many spices except black peppercorn while we people can’t enjoy unless food is not a bit spicy, so today I tried to level my best that could bring some changes in the recipe I am using Reho Fillet you can use any type of fish that you most like but take care of it fish should be fresh because stale fish can spoil the real taste of fish I will also tell you in my recipe that how to make crispy frying potato chips, so let’s start step by step with photos...
