SPICY FISH CURRY

Fish curry with cooked tapioca or hot plain rice are the best ever combo. Its a comfort meal. Usually I have heard people says, fish curry prepared in clay pot tastes really good. But never had chance to make it. Also fish curry tastes better the next day. We make fish curry immediatly when we bring fresh fish from chinese market. Rajesh too helps me to make this recipe. Tilapia or Tuna fish or Mackerel is also perfect for this curry. And specially for Veggie guys, you can too make the same curry adding boiled potatoes instead of fish. That too tastes delicious. So heres my recipe!

INGREDIENTS FOR MARINATION.

1 Medium Size Fish.( I used Mackerel)

3 tbs Coriander powder.

1 tbs Chilli powder.

1 tsp Turmeric powder.

3 inch 4 or 5 Crushed Ginger.

2 slit Green chilly.

Salt to taste.

INGREDIENTS FOR GRAVY.

1 Diced Onions.

3 tbs Coriander powder.

Lemon sized Tamarind.

1/2 cup Hot water.

1 cup Coconut milk.

1 tbs Oil.

Few Curry leaves.

Salt to taste.

GARNISH.

5 Chopped Shallots.

Few Curry leaves.

METHOD.

Soak the tamarind in 1/2 a cup of hot water for 10 minutes. Now mash the tamarind with your fingers . Strain through a sieve to extract all the pulp. Keep pulp aside.

Cut the fish into 1" thick slices and marinate it with marinated items listed above for half an hour.
Heat oil in a pan. Add diced onions, curry leaves and salt. Fry till the onions are half cooked. Add coriander powder and fry till u get a nice aroma.

Add tamarind pulp and bring it to boil. At the time of boiling gently add the fish marinade. Close the pan with the lid and cook on medium heat till the fish is cooked. Increase the heat and reduce the gravy if needed.
When the fish pieces are cooked and firm, slowly stir in the coconut milk and bring to a boil on low flame.

In another pan,heat oil and fry chopped shallots and curry leaves . Lastly garnish on the fish curry.


Serve with rice or chapathi.

Hi, the fish curry is lovely! Wish I could have it right away. My mother makes this a lot especially with mackarel:-)Brought back a lot of memories- like when I was unwell and had been on leave from school (8th std) and hogged on hot rice with this fish curry, and amma wondered if I was really ill!
