Fish Tikka #sikandalouscuisine

This recipe works well for delicious deep frying or for the air fryer too - I leave that choice to you . I made them both ways and the photograph has a mixture of the two  , can you tell the difference if any ? Here is what I did.
500 Grams Boneless Sole - Cut into 2" pieces.
First Marination - 15-20 minutes:
1 Tablespoon Garlic Paste.
1 Heaped Teaspoon Ajwain - Slightly crush ajwain by hitting it once.
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice.
1 Teaspoon Salt.
While fish is marinating in the above make the besan mixture :
1 Cup Basen - seasoned with salt and chilies , you can add kasoori methi which I did . Add just enough thick curd to make a medium thick batter also add 1 tablespoon Mustard Oil.Allow batter to rest for 15 minutes.
Dip fish in batter for 1-2 minutes , deep fry over medium heat for 3-5 minutes , remove from oil , allow fish to rest - the fish will continue to cook from within with the heat trapped within. When ready to eat , fry the fish a second time in very hot oil just to get the color and crunch .

OR heat air fryer at 180 for 5 minutes and air fry for 7-8 minutes , turn pieces , spray oil and air fry another 4-5 minutes.
You tell me if you can spot the difference in the pieces !
