Fish Curry








Fish Curry is one of the most traditional and adored dish in all pasts of Kerala. Me, basically from kottayam,  alway thought that fish curry in central past of kerala always had a unique and superb taste :).. So here is the recipe to fish in curry in tanni achayathi style :)


Ingredients :


King fish : 6-7 smallpieces (approx 300 gm)
Curry Leaves : 2 strings
Tamarind(kokum) : 2-3 pieces (vallan pulli)
Small Onions : 1 1/2 cups (sliced or chopped)
Garlic : 4 big cloves sliced or chopped
Ginger : a medium piece sliced or chopped
Chillie Powder : 1 1/2 tbsp
Coriander Powder : 3/4 tbsp
Turmeric Powder : 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek Powder : 1 tsp (uluva podi)
Mustard seeds : 1/2 tsp
Salt
Coconut Oil


Preparation :


Wash the fish properly and put in the curry leaves and tamraind and close the lid and keep aside. Meanwhile chopp all the other ingredients and in a pan, once pan is hot add oil and add in the mustard seeds. Once seeds splutter add in the ginger and garlic and saute for about 1 min and then ad in the onions. Saute till onions are lightly brown in color. Then add in the all the powders and saute till the raw smell leaves and the mixture will be now dark in color. Switch off the flame and add the mixture into the fish which was kept aside. Now add water till almost the top of fish and cook on medium flame covered till the fish get s cooked. Then open the lid and add salt and cook till done and the water reaches your consistency.
Serve hot wth rice :)
